The suspects were arrested just a few minutes later, NOLA.com reports.

Detectives at the station heard glass being shattered next door a little after midnight, NOLA.com reports. Immediately afterword, a person “ran into the station to let officers know that two men were burglarizing David's Antiques and Jewelry store,” according to the news report.
