Teens face charges for gun store smash and grab

ZEPHYRHILLS-- Two 17-year-olds are facing armed burglary charges for their alleged role in a Florida gun shop smash-and-grab.

They were arrested Wednesday after turning themselves in.

Surveillance video of the crime shows a stolen pickup truck crashing through the store-front before three suspects begin smashing and looting display cases.

Police say the truck was found burned nearby, and that a few of the firearms linked to the crime were recovered.

The teens were charged as adults, and more arrests are expected, according to police.
