NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro Police say two teens they arrested Friday admitted to committing seven burglaries in the Salemtown area near downtown.

The juveniles, ages 14 and 17, were captured by officers investigating a break-in in the 1700 block of 5th Avenue North.

Police say the teens admitted breaking into seven Salemtown homes during the past three weeks while working with Timmy Bufford, a convicted felon, who would give them marijuana in exchange for the stolen items.

Bufford, 40, allegedly would advise the teens of which homes to burglarize while he would wait for them in his vehicle, a Ford Expedition. Bufford would then sell the stolen items from his home in the 1700 block of 6th Avenue North, police said.

The teens are each charged in juvenile court with aggravated burglary and theft.

Bufford is charged with theft.
