LANGFORD, B.C. - Charges of using a weapon and disguise during a robbery are being laid against three youth after a home invasion in Langford, B.C.

Mounties say three people wearing masks and carrying knives burst into the home of a 60-year-old man Tuesday morning.

Police were in the area and quickly arrested two suspects, aged 16 and 17.

A third youth turned himself into police later in the day.

Police say they believe the incident involves drugs, but they aren't sure if the victim and suspects knew each other.

RCMP Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz says two of the accused have been remanded in custody until a court appearance later this week.
