    An investigation into nearly a dozen attempted burglaries in Central Texas has led to the arrest of three youths, including a 10-year-old suspect.

    Travis County jail records show 17-year-old Erik Marciel was being held Thursday on two counts of attempted burglary of a habitation.

    Online jail records don't list an attorney for Marciel, who was booked Wednesday with bond set at $7,500.

    Austin police say the 10-year-old and another juvenile have also been detained. Further details on the minors weren't immediately available.

    Investigators say another suspect is being sought after reports of house break-ins on April 10. Police responded to reports of a neighbor seeing four people acting suspiciously near a home, including trying to open the windows.

    An affidavit says one minor is suspected in at least 11 burglaries.
