DOVER — Three teens were quickly arrested after fleeing on their bicycles as police responded to a reported residential robbery early Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

Jaymere J. Willis, 15, of the 1200 block of Walker Road, Shiheem Durham, 14, of the first block of Webbs Lane, and Joshua Prigge, 15, of the 100 block of Continental Drive, were taken into custody without incident at approximately 1 p.m., according to the Dover Police Department.

No property was taken from the residence, police said, as the suspects quickly fled upon law enforcement’s arrival.

Police were called to a unit block residence on Village Drive after a neighbor witnessed a rear door kicked in after residents left the home, police said.

Charges included second-degree burglary, second-degree conspiracy and criminal mischief.

The trio was arraigned through Justice of the Peace Court 7 in Dover, and their cases were transferred to Kent County Family Court. No bond was set and the teens were turned over to their parents, police said.

While it was unknown whether the bicycles were confiscated, Dover Police spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said they likely were returned to the parents or family members.
