Dispatch advised that the reporting party observed two male subjects at the back door of a residence. As deputies responded, dispatch advised that the two male subjects took off running through an alleyway. Upon arrival, deputies contacted the reporting party. The RP said that his father owns the property and he rents the house out. The RP further said that they have been having problems with burglaries at the residence. The RP advised observing two male subjects at the back door and the younger male subject was reaching through the window trying to open the door.
