Police caught two teenage boys — 16-year-old Austin Serrano and 17-year-old Jordan Vigil — who Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Deputies say escaped custody while at the First Judicial District Courthouse in downtown Santa Fe.

The teens escaped custody of the Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Office, which was in charge of transporting them to the courthouse.

The two teens, who police say were in tan jail jumpsuits and were barefoot for some reason, were tracked down — one by Santa Fe Police, one by New Mexico State Police — thanks in part to cops being able to track their footprints in the snow. There are reports of one residential and one auto burglary in the area at the time of their Monday afternoon escape. Police are investigating whether the teens were responsible.

Colleague Robert Nott will have a story for tomorrow’s New Mexican as I am off today and out of the office.

Thanks to media partner Gadi “On the Spot” for sharing the pic.
