Four suspected burglars were busted Monday after a neighbor spotted the suspects breaking into a Denver home.

The neighbor called police and said he saw the burglars, with a golf club, going into a home on Dexter Drive, near 25th Avenue.

Denver Police said when officers arrived one suspect surrendered. Another climbed up on the roof and had to be convinced to come down.

Two other suspects stayed in the house. There was a standoff for about an hour before officers went in and arrested the last two suspects.

Detectives told Denver7 the suspects are juveniles.

Officers are trying to determine if the suspected burglars are responsible for other crimes in the area.
