DeKalb County police say they’ve identified two teens accused of stealing 16 guns from a pawn shop.

Brandon Harris, 17, was arrested on a burglary charge, and Tranquan Burnett, 19, remained wanted Thursday morning, police said.

The pair were identified after a tipster learned of the break-in at Candler Park Pawn Shop through local media.

Investigators believe they broke in before daylight Tuesday, shattered cases with a baseball bat and took the weapons.

One was an AR-15, while the rest were handguns, according to a police report. 

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact police at 404-286-7990 or Crime Stoppers 404-577-TIPS.
