MIDLAND - More teens in trouble for stealing guns in Midland.

The two latest to end up in handcuffs, 19-year-old Thomas Slade and 18-year-old Matthew Blaine were arrested on Friday.

Five other teens were jailed earlier this week after getting caught red-handed throwing stolen guns over a fence near Ruby and Thomason Street.

A neighbor saw them and called police.

Officers learned the weapons were stolen from a Midland County home and called in deputies.

One of the suspects, Curtis Perkins, is related to the homeowner.

The teens face several charges but all are accused of engaging in organized criminal activity.

Because guns are involved, they face up to life in prison if convicted.
