Albany -- Dougherty County Police and Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigators busted a teen burglary ring, and are searching for at least five stolen guns still missing.

Investigators recovered several weapons that were taken in recent home burglaries in the Radial Subdivision in East Dougherty County.  

Three 15 and 16-year-old boys are suspects.  Investigators used search warrants Thursday and Friday to recover many of the stolen goods, but they haven't filed charges yet as they continue to look for the missing guns.

"We don't want these weapons to show up in the school system.  We don't want them anywhere on the streets.  Really, they need to be returned to the owners before something bad happens with one of them," said Dougherty County Police Lt. J. C. Phillips.

Investigators estimate the worth of the stolen goods at more than ten thousand dollars.
