Three teenage boys are charged in a series of vehicle and home burglaries in west suburban Aurora.

Two of the teens were stopped about 5 p.m. June 29 after police responded to a call of shots fire near Galena Boulevard and Harrison Avenue in Aurora, according to police spokesman Dan Ferrelli.

The 17-year-old and one of the 15-year-olds were found in a vehicle near there, police said. Inside the vehicle, officers found a firearm which had been reported stolen June 25 from a home in the 2300 block of Goldenrod Court.

Investigators later searched the older teen’s bedroom, and found numerous items reported stolen from vehicles in the Golden Oaks subdivision in mid-June as well as items from a June 29 home burglary in the 200 block of North Buell Avenue.

The third teen, also 15, was arrested July 15 after he allegedly shot two friends on accident in the 500 block of Howard Street, police said.

All three teens are facing residential burglary charges in connection with the incident on Goldenrod Court, according to police. One of the younger teens was also charged with five counts of motor vehicle burglary.

The 17-year-old was additionally charged with one count of possession of stolen property in connection with the vehicle burglaries and the home burglary on North Buell, police said.

Their names were not released because they are being charged as juveniles, police said. All three are currently being held in the Kane County Juvenile Detention Center in St. Charles.

Further charges are possible as police continue to investigate.
