A Notre Dame football signee is among three teenagers accused of breaking into a business and stealing nine guns, according to a report on Saturday.

Lexington, Ky., television station WKYT said Landen Bartleson, 18, and two 16-year-olds face charges of criminal mischief, burglary and receiving stolen property.

Bartleson, ranked as a three-star cornerback on the 247Sports composite, signed with Notre Dame on Dec. 18 and was expected to enroll in June.

WKYT said police responded to a report of a burglary at a store in Danville, Ky., and quickly took the three suspects into custody. Police also located a stolen car linked to the suspects, and all nine guns were found in it, according to the report.

Notre Dame has not yet commented on Bartleson’s future with the program.
