    A 16-year-old Virginia boy has been charged in a breaking-and-entering case after allegedly selling a stolen camera to a pawn shop.

    The residents of a home on Neabsco Drive in the Leeland Station subdivision called police last month to report a break-in. Over the course of the investigation, authorities said, a detective from the Stafford County Sheriff's Office found a camera belonging to the residents at a local pawn shop.

    Authorities executed a search warrant at the teen's home Thursday and found evidence tying him to the burglary, they said.

    The suspect has been charged with breaking and entering, grand larceny and larceny with intent to sell. He is currently being held at the Rappahannock Regional Juvenile Detention Center.

    He had just been released from house arrest and was on probation for a previous breaking and entering case nearby, authorities said.

    They are investigating whether the teen was involved in other recent break-ins in the area.
