ELIZABETHTON — Carter County Sheriff Chris Mathes said the Dec. 1 burglary of the Blue Springs Gun Shop was committed by two teenagers. The two teens were arrested over the weekend and 46 weapons and several boxes of ammunition have been recovered.

In a Monday morning press conference, Mathes identified one of the teens as Joshua Wade Ray, 18, 132 Dogtown Road. The other teen is 17 years old and his name was not immediately released because he is in Juvenile Court. Mathes said he is working to have the juvenile charged as an adult.

Both teens were charged with aggravated burglary and theft over $10,000.
