    FALMOUTH, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – Four teens have been arrested in connection with a home invasion that occurred on Sandcastle Drive in East Falmouth Saturday morning.

    Officers responded to the home at about 6:15 a.m. after the occupants reported three masked men, one armed with a rifle and another armed with a stun gun, had entered their home and stole several items. The victims told police the suspects had already fled the scene in a car.

    Police said the victims were not harmed.

    Following an investigation, police executed a search warrant at a home on Old Barnstable Road and recovered all the stolen property, including televisions, jewelry, a DVD player, phone, and alcohol, except for the cash.

    Michael Fernandes and Elijan Smith, both 18 and East Falmouth residents, were arrested and charged with home invasion. A 16-year-old North Falmouth resident was also charged with home invasion.

    Kayla Pina, 18, of East Falmouth, was also arrested and charged with obstruction of justice.
