ROCK HILL, S.C. — Two teens in South Carolina were arrested when police found each of them carrying a .38-caliber revolver and ammunition near two apartment complexes.

The boys’ parents dropped them at a pond to go fishing but they decided to break into a home and steal firearms instead, according to The Herald.

“After they were dropped off, they left the area and began to walk through the woods,” according to The Herald. “They approached the above residence and realized that nobody was home. The front door was partially ajar, so all they had to do was push the door slightly to gain entry.”

They found the guns in a safe at the home they broke into and walked back to the pond.

Their parents picked them up and took them home around 8 p.m.

Officers spotted a cigar in one of the boys’ pockets as they were walking from Stones Crossing Apartments to Heather Heights Apartments around 9 p.m.

When the officer asked the boys if they had anything else illegal on them one of the boys took a few steps back and told the officer they didn’t.

The officers searched the boys and found the stolen guns and ammunition.

Each were charged with unlawful possession of a gun.

The stolen guns and ammunition were returned to the owner, according to the The Herald.
