Authorities have charged Devyne Witcher with the theft of six pistols and a rifle from a unit at the Williamsburg Apartments in Red Bank.
Witcher was just short of his 18th birthday at the time of the Jan. 17, 2017, incident.
It was decided to move the case to Criminal Court and he has been indicted by the Hamilton County Grand Jury on a charge of aggravated burglary.
The victim said, while he was away for three hours, someone kicked in his front door and stole several items. Police said the internal door frame had been split and the deadbolt was still engaged.
The victim said the guns were in a big black case with pegs in it which held the pistols. He said it would have taken two people to carry the heavy case.
Residents told of seeing two young black males outside the victim's residence.
Police were led to the residence of Witcher, and his mother gave consent to search the house. Police said the black gun case was found in a closet in Witcher's bedroom.
Police said the back of the case had been cut into and the guns were missing.
A black 40" TV that had also been taken from the residence was found in Witcher's bedroom also.
Witcher is set to go before Criminal Court Judge Tom Greenholtz on Feb. 9.
