Levy County deputies picked up two teens over the weekend after they were accused of stealing a rifle and firing it inside a home, then crashing a stolen vehicle.

Deputies said a 13-year-old Williston boy and 15-year-old Morriston boy went on a crime spree in Bronson that began Friday night inside a home in the 700 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Once inside the home, the teens are accused of stealing two high power rifles and a shotgun and then causing more than $1,000 worth of damage when they fired the rifle.

The crimes continued, according to deputies, when the teen stole a 2008 Chevrolet Trail Blazer and crashed it into the woods. Next the pair burglarized another vehicle and tried to steal it, according to the sheriff's office.

Deputies said the teens led them on a foot chase before they arrested and turned over to juvenile authorities.
