Inside the car police found items taken from home burglaries as well as tools believed to have been used for breaking into homes. Clemens says police also recovered two handguns that were taken in burglaries.
Clemens says the boy, whose name is not being released. is charged with third and second degree burglary and possession of a stolen car, handguns and burglary tools.
He says police are looking for a second male teenager.
