Bet you can't steal just one. Three teenage boys from central New Jersey have been charged with breaking into an apartment and stealing $7,000 worth of jewelry, then hiding the loot in an empty Cheetos bag.

The bag was later found inside a swing set in a local park in Freehold.

The boys, ages 15 and 16, have been charged with attempted burglary, burglary and trespassing. Police recovered most of the stolen jewelry.

Police say the boys unsuccessfully tried to break into one unit at a condominium complex, they burglarized a second unit and took the jewelry while the resident was at church services.

The boys have been released to their parents.
