PETTIS COUNTY, Mo. - Two men have been charged with burglary and stealing after they were accused of taking multiple guns from a man's house. 

According to the probable cause statement, the victim returned home one day and found multiple items missing. Police said the suspects took 14 rifles and shotguns, a First Alert Security monitoring console and approximately $200 in change. 

Officers said there was also damage done to three screens and windows and wires to Greg's camera system were cut. Police estimated the amount of damage to be $250.

Police made contact with the two suspects, Adam Moseley and Jacob King. King admitted to officers that they broke into the victim's house because the victim had made Moseley mad. 

King told officers that Moseley entered into the victim's house through a window and then King came in through the back door. King thought the items they had taken belonged to Moseley's dad. 

According to public jail records, the two are no longer in custody.

ABC 17 is requesting the mug shot of Jacob King.
