Three teen brothers were charged after police allegedly found drugs, four guns and an assault rifle inside a townhouse where their siblings live, with one as young as 11 years old.

Acting on community complaints, police raided the home and say they found two loaded guns, crack cocaine, marijuana and $2,000 cash.

Two of the boys, 16 and 18, are accused of having two loaded handguns and one unloaded gun in their bedroom.

Their 19-year-old brother is facing gun charges for allegedly having an SKS assault rifle and two loaded handguns. Police allege he was also found in possession of crack cocaine.

Seven siblings live in the home with ages ranging from 28-years-old to as young as 11.

“I’ve never seen this before,” Detective Robin Dey of the 51 Division Street Crime Unit told about finding these weapons in a family home with so many children inside.

Police will not reveal the location of the home or the names of the older brothers to prevent identifying the underage brother.

They say those charged may be associated with gangs.

All three accused are scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
