A Glock handgun magazine was recovered from the suspects, raising concerns about the potential for more serious crimes, police said. 

The morning after the teens' arrests, police received multiple reports from other neighbors that their cars had been burglarized. After investigation, it was determined that these same three teens were responsible for those burglaries as well, police said.
