A youth was charged Monday night with stealing three handguns and other items Saturday night during a break-in at a house less than a mile from where he lives.
Police arrested Tywon Markees Dasher, 16, at his home at 2424 Lawrence Drive, records showed. They accused him of second-degree burglary, felony larceny and three counts of stealing a gun.
The break-in happened between 9 p.m. and midnight Saturday when no one was home at the house on Appalachian Drive, police said in an arrest warrant.
In addition to the handguns – a 9 mm, a .32-caliber and a .22-caliber – a watch, two boxes of ammunition and other items were taken, police said.
Dasher was held in lieu of $250,000 bail pending a court appearance.
