Two teens face charges after Halton Police recovered guns stolen from an Acton break-in at a Milton residence Tuesday.

Shortly after midnight, police responded to the area of Robarts and Buck Drives — on a call from the public about suspicious people — where they located a stolen 2003 Chevrolet Silverado, abandoned at the roadside.

The vehicle had been taken from St. Alban’s Drive in Acton and used during a break-in at a residence on May Street in Georgetown earlier that day.

In the break-in, suspects broke in through a basement window and took a gun safe that held five firearms and ammunition along with jewelry and digital equipment.

Two suspects were arrested by police after an investigation.

Ahmad Wali Amiri, 19, of Oakville was arrested on Tuesday and a second person, whose identity is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was arrested on Wednesday in Mississauga.

Guns, ammunition and a quantity of the stolen property was recovered from the Milton home.

Both were charged with theft of a motor vehicle, break enter and committing an indictable offence, possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000, five counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of break and enter tools.
