The two are facing charges of third-degree burglary, second-degree theft of property and unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle.
The break-in happened in the early morning hours of May 1 and Dora police took the alleged burglars into custody later that day.
“We were just following up on leads and when we pulled up at the residence, we could see some of the stolen property in the yard,” Police Chief John Duchock said.
The police knocked on the door of the residence but received no response.
At that point they secured the premises and obtained a search warrant for the residence and surrounding buildings and property.
Car batteries, rebar, sheet metal and a gas space heater were among the stolen items that were recovered from the property.
Stolen Christmas lights, valued at approximately $500, were found smoldering in a barrel in the yard as well.
Both suspects were found in the residence when police entered to execute the search warrant.
Police say Mann and the juvenile admitted to taking the items from Water Wheel. Mann was transported to the Walker County Jail and the juvenile was remanded to a local juvenile facility.
