POLICE have today arrested a gang of teens accused of stealing a stack of rifles from an Upper Coomera home, four of which were found stashed in bushland behind a nursing home yesterday morning.
It’s alleged the four teenagers smashed into a home overnight Monday and stole nine rifles and two LCD televisions.
Seven News journalist Bianca Stone said the group then allegedly hid the weapons in various spots around the suburb.

An early morning walker stumbled across four of the rifles stashed in a treeline off Godden Drive a few hours later.
Detectives investigating the frightening discovery today arrested four teenagers – two boys aged 14, a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy – and recovered the remaining five firearms.
It’s alleged the group planned on selling the weapons – including a few sniper rifles and double barrel shotguns – for big bucks on the black market.
