Three Ocean Township children are being charged with burglary, theft, and criminal mischief after breaking into their friend's house Easter Sunday.

The Asbury Park Press reports the juveniles, ages 11, 12, and 14, stole cash and hunting knives from the Tanya Circle home while the family was away.

Police would not release the names of the alleged burglars because of their ages.  The children were apprehended Sunday evening and returned to family members. The cash and knives were recovered by police.

Charges are being sent to the Monmouth County Superior Court's Family Division.
