Weapons charges have been lad against two young people in Stratford.

Police say they were notified on Wednesday morning by the owner of a home on Younge Street who said a shed in their backyard had been broken into overnight.

After watching video surveillance footage, police say they saw the two youths go into the backyard at the home around 10:30 Tuesday night with one of the suspects holding a handgun.

The two then left the area without taking anything and they were later identified and arrested.

The suspected handgun was located during the arrest and was found to be a BB gun, which police took and held as evidence.

Both suspects face several charges including Weapons Dangerous, Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.
