Lincoln Police arrested two minors in connection to a late November burglary at Dirt Cheap.

Police say they got a phone call from a man who found dozens of packets of potpourri, a legal form of synthetic marijuana, in his 16-year-old son's bedroom.  Through the investigation, another 14-year-old boy was also arrested after officers found more stolen packets in his bedroom.

The potpourri was reported stolen from Dirt Cheap on November 24th.  Police say the two teens broke into the store located at 27th and Randolph around 4 a.m. and took off with a smoking pipe, cash and 300 packets of potpourri valued at $6,000.

The teens were taken to the juvenile detention center for burglary.
