HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Two young men are behind bars after being accused of stealing a shot-gun from a car parked at a Henrico School.

Police say Brendan Collins and Eric Cheatham opened the door to an unlocked Chevrolet pickup truck at Hermitage High School on Wednesday, found a shotgun underneath the passenger seat, and took it.

The gun was never taken inside the school.

Police say a witness saw both suspects commit the crime and later identified them to officers at a basketball game.
