A group of Beloit teens is accused of burglarizing a home and stealing nearly 20 guns.

Three 16-year-old Beloit men and two 17-year-old Beloit men have been arrested in connection with Tuesday night's burglary. Police are seeking a 19-year-old Janesville man for his role in the burglary. Police say the teens are tentatively charged with Burglary While Armed and Theft of Guns. Captain Bill Tyler says the burglary is of specific concern because a number of the "approximately 17" guns have not yet been recovered.

Police expect to release names and photos of the suspects Thursday.
