Three teens are in custody for allegedly plotting to steal a safe from one of the suspect's grandfather's home. Zachary Brown and Destin Delahoussaye, both 17, and an unnamed 16-year-old male are charged with simple burglary. Detectives say Brown allowed the 16-year-old to stab him in the arm in order to lure Brown's grandfather away from his Birch Street home. Officials say Delahoussaye and the 16-year-old broke into the house and took the safe while Brown and the grandfather were at a local hospital. According to deputies, a witness saw Delahoussaye and the 16-year-old carrying the safe down the street and called police. Brown and Delahoussaye are also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.
