PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in the Panhandle say they have arrested two 19-year-old men in connection with an armed robbery that included stealing puppies at gunpoint.

The Pensacola News Journal ( ) reported on Monday that the men were arrested by the Escambia County Sheriff's Office following a Sunday morning home invasion and robbery.

According to the sheriff's office, the two men are suspected of wearing masks and holding guns as they forced their way into a home and demanded residents give them various electronics, cash and two pit bull puppies.

No one was injured in the robbery.

Sheriff's deputies later stopped the car the men were driving and found masks and the puppies in the back seat.

The men have been charged with home invasion and wearing masks in the commission of a crime.
