Five youths from Seaford are accused of breaking into a home and stealing two BB guns, two pool cues and several swords. State police say the homeowner called police Sunday morning after he saw three boys running from his home. The homeowner also reported finding holes in his house and his two vehicles from BB gun shots.

A police dog tracked the three boys to a nearby home, where they were arrested. Police found that the boys had also burglarized the home on Saturday with the help of two girls. The stolen property was recovered from the boys' home.

Police say the youths forced open the front door to get inside the house.

Two of the boys are 11 years old, while the third is 15. The girls are 14 and 13. All face charges including burglary, theft and conspiracy.
