NIAGARA FALLS – Police led two men out of a house at gunpoint after responding to a burglary-in-progress call just after noon Wednesday in the 8300 block of Laughlin Drive.

Darren J. Holland, 17, of 87th Street and Aaron M. Adamec, 19, of 70th Street were both charged with felony counts of second-degree burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree possession of stolen property, as well as fourth-degree criminal mischief.

A neighbor alerted police that two men had entered the home through a rear window and police found the window open, a door handle broken and saw movement inside the house. Both men were ordered to surrender and were taken into custody at gunpoint without incident.

Adamec was found with a silver watch, gold necklace and silver earrings in his pocket which were later identified as belonging to the victim, police reported.
