OREM, Utah - It's a double punch in the gut for the victims.

An 85-year-old Orem man and his wife were at a funeral Saturday when their home was broken into and burglarized.

It didn't take long for police to solve the crime and for the victims to realize one of the suspects was related to them.

Officers said 18-year-old Jacqueline Glass and her boyfriend, 19-year-old Dylon Chandler, were busted after cops say they found the pair had several items taken from the victims' home, including vintage coins and cash.

Detectives say the two admitted to the crime and the victims led police to the suspects after noticing Jacqueline was not at the funeral.

The suspects were booked into the Utah County Jail and now face felony burglary charges.

Officers say they recovered much of what was taken except at least one handgun still unaccounted for which they are very concerned about.
