By FOX 47 News . CREATED Dec 30, 2013

Two teens have been arrested after trying to steal generators.

Lansing Police say the men, ages 16 and 18, tried to swipe the equipment from two different homes on the 3000 block of Hillcrest around 4:00am Sunday.

Police spotted them during the second attempt.The men were caught after a brief chase.

Generator theft has become a big problem ever since the lights went out in Mid-Michigan. Darkened homes abandoned by their owners seeking warmth elsewhere have been the primary target of those looking to score big on other items besides generators that were left behind.
