MIDDLETOWN, Md. -- Three Middletown teenagers have been charged in connection with a burglary that happened Sunday at a home in the 4500 block of Granite Drive in Middletown, the Frederick County Bureau of Investigations said in a news release Friday.

John D. Carpenter, 18; Anthony J. Mounts, 17; and Dustin M. Raimond, 17, were each charged as adults with first- and second-degree burglary, theft of more than $500, stealing property valued at more than $500, three counts of carrying a handgun inside a vehicle, and three counts of possession of a handgun by someone younger than 21, police said.

Money and three handguns were stolen in the burglary, police said.

On Thursday, detectives interviewed a suspect in the case, seized a vehicle and executed a search warrant for an unoccupied farm in Middletown, where it was believed the suspects were holding stolen property, police said.

Two of the three stolen handguns were recovered during the search, police said.
