    WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say two teens have been arrested after robbing a Georgia home twice in one day.

    Citing a Cherokee County Sheriff's Office release, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports 18-year-old Jarrell Bankston and a 16-year-old were arrested Wednesday. The two were taken into custody on charges including burglary and possession of drug-related objects. Police haven't released the identity of the 16-year-old.

    The release says the teens robbed the Woodstock home earlier that day and were spotted trying to re-enter it. The release says they ran when deputies arrived but were later arrested. It says deputies recovered a backpack believed to have been taken from the home. The backpack held clothing, two knives, drug-related objects and less than an ounce of marijuana.

    It's unclear if the teens have lawyers.
