Two robbers have been arrested after a girl noticed them pull their truck into a yard and load up a four wheeler and dirt bike from a barn, police in East Ridge say.

The alleged crime happened at 6950 Martha Avenue on July 8.

The girl called authorities and her parents. The parents were en route back to the residence when they noticed the suspect vehicle and followed them, providing real-time updates to police.

East Ridge police caught up to the suspects at the intersection of Market Street and 20th Street in Chattanooga.

An attempted stop resulted in a short vehicle pursuit followed by a foot chase, according to a release from the East Ridge Police Department.

The suspects were arrested and identified as brothers Andrew Santora, 27, and Anthony Santora, 25.

Both are charged with burglary and theft over $500. Anthony was also charged with driving on a revoked license.

They are scheduled to appear in East Ridge Court on July 22.
