ELLIS COUNTY, Texas - Two Oklahoma teens are dead after a botched robbery attempt in Ellis County, Texas Wednesday.
Police confirmed Thursday that 17-year-old Kenneth Chaffin and 18-year-old Dillon King were involved in a violent home invasion in Ellis County. King and Chaffin were from the same small community of Bethel Acres.
Roland Chaffin says his daughter found the family's home ransacked Monday night. Nine handguns, six rifles and two shotguns were missing along with more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, medication and Roland Chaffin's truck.
"The pick up was missing, he was missing, all the guns, he kicked the bedroom door open, he'd taken the money, the guns and some prescription medication," said Pottowatomie County undersheriff J.T. Palmer.
