Two Macon teens, already charged in a Monroe County double -homicide, now also face charges in a pawn-shop break-in three weeks earlier.

On April 24, someone drove a truck into Macon Pawn and Gun on Mercer University Drive and stole 10 pistols.

Three weeks later, two men, Russell Jacobs and James Pittman,  were murdered at a Monroe County home.

Four Macon teens -- Sameeria Rikiea Carter, 16, Marquez Deshawn Martin, 19, Jordan Keaugh Maxwell, 18, and 17-year-old Dave'von Sapp -- were charged with murder in the case.

Investigators say the four met the victims at a north Bibb County gas station, gave them a ride home, then shot them and robbed the house.

On Wednesday, Macon police said Martin and Maxwell were also responsible for the April 24 break-in at the pawn shop. A Macon police news release said they and two others were charged after an anonymous Crimestoppers tip.

Also charged in the pawn-shop case:

17-year-old Marquincio Antwun Simmons, charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime; auto theft, kidnapping with bodily injury, aggravated assault and burglary. He is in the Bibb County jail.

17-year-old Shacor Nyon Brinson-Lamptey; charged with burglary. He was released on bond.

Martin and Maxwell remain in the Monroe County jail.

Monroe County Sheriff John Cary Bittick says, after the murder arrests, investigators found a gun in one of the suspects' homes that was apparently stolen in the pawn-shop break. But they do not believe it was used in the Monroe murder, he said.
