TULSA, OK -- Tulsa police arrested four suspected burglars on Thursday who are practically still babies.  They're the age of sixth graders.

A neighbor in east Tulsa saw the 12 and 13 year olds break into a house and called police.  When officers spotted them, the boy burglars ran, but were captured.  

Officers say it's ridiculous to see kids this young committing crimes, but it's becoming more common.

"It's increasing with the juveniles, that's the sad part.  Because that's the future of our city and country," said Tulsa Police Captain Karen Ford.

Police will turn the four over to their parents who will be asked to explain to a juvenile judge why the boys weren't in school.
