The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office has identified two teens suspected of breaking into a tasting room along Highway 46 last week.

The burglary happened at the Mission Trail Cider House in Cholame on the night of Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Sheriff’s officials say approximately $400 was taken from the cash register and several windows were shattered with what appeared to be BB gun pellets.

The Jack Ranch Café next door also reported the theft of about $100, according to the sheriff’s office.

Surveillance cameras inside the tasting room captured the two burglars on video.

Sheriff’s officials say they learned of similar burglaries recently occurring in King City and just this week, a 13-year-old and a 16-year-old who matched the description of the tasting room burglars were arrested in Salinas.

Deputies reportedly traveled to Monterey County to interview the suspects. Officials say the two admitted to being involved in the burglaries.

The teens are reportedly from Colorado.

Investigators say they stole a car in that state and were making their way west, committing burglaries along the way.

The sheriff’s office says it plans to file charges of burglary and felony vandalism with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, but the teens will first face charges in Monterey County.
