Clearfield, PA – Three 18-year-old men from Clearfield are facing felony charges after they allegedly broke into a home and attempted to steal firearms.
Clearfield Borough Police say that Alexander Frantz, Mason Warren, and Clayton Brown reportedly entered an unoccupied home on Woodland Road through an open window sometime after dark on Friday, June 19.
Police were actually carefully watching the house, as they had been previously tipped off that the teens might be attempting to break into it.
Although police were told that the three teens could have plans of stealing the guns and using them to shoot at a home in Curwensville, the suspects allege that they wanted to sell the firearms to make money.
After being arrested during the attempted break-in, officers also found marijuana and an illegal pistol on one of the teens.
Frantz and Brown are both facing felony burglary charges. Because Warren did not actually enter the home, he faces charges for conspiring for the burglary, along with carrying a firearm without a license and carrying a firearm with the manufacturer number altered.
Frantz and Warren are currently detained in Clearfield County Jail after they were unable to pay $50,000 bail. Brown is free on $10,000 unsecured bail.
