NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Nashville Police officers found three stolen guns and marijuana at a Nashville apartment, leading to the arrest of five teens.

Officers charged four 14-year-olds and one 15-year-old on gun and marijuana charges after Saturday's arrests.

Officers were conducting a search warrant when they found the three loaded guns hidden inside a stuffed teddy bear in an upstairs bedroom. All of the guns were loaded with rounds chambered. Two of the pistols were reported stolen.

One was stolen during a car burglary on 14th Avenue South at Hawkins Street on June 12, the other during an apartment burglary on Premier Drive in West Nashville last December.
