The first boy’s mother showed up at the 14th Police District’s headquarters with her son and turned him in, according to a detective. The mother said that she had seen the video and identified her son as one of the robbers. An hour later, police said they got another call from the other suspect’s parents; they, too, identified their son and wanted to turn him in.

Both boys were arrested and charged with robbery and related offenses, said Officer Christine O’Brien, a police spokeswoman. The boys were then released to their parents and allowed to go home.

In a phone interview with The Enquirer, the detective credited the parents for the quick arrests and added a warning for would-be criminals: Security cameras have gotten better, he said. It was just a matter of time.
