2 men, juvenile girl charged with stealing guns from Springdale home

Two men are charged with burglary and conspiracy in connection with stolen firearms.

Zackery Boreland, 18, and Cody Christy, 19, are charged with burglary, theft and related charges, according to Allegheny County police. A 17-year-old girl also faces charges in juvenile court.

The suspects were arrested after a social media app led police to an early-morning traffic stop Tuesday in Springdale.



Investigators said a 15-year-old girl used the social media app Snapchat to send a video of a girl apparently holding one of the guns while in a minivan.

Police used Snapchat's map location tool to track the teen, and eventually found the van on Colfax Street.

Police found nine people in the van, including the suspects and six other people ranging in age from 14 to 17 years old. The minors were released to their parents and the guns were found at a home in Tarentum.

All three suspects are from the Tarentum area.
