PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Two Prescott men have been arrested in connection with a home invasion in northern Arizona.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 18-year-old Patrick Collins and 31-year-old Jacob Cota remained jailed on $50,000 bond apiece.

Both are being held on suspicion of robbery, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and theft.

Deputies say the Cota and Collins are suspected in a Dec. 22 robbery at a home in Prescott.

The 84-year-old homeowner says two men confronted him and stole at least five firearms.

The victim believes the suspects have been to his home on prior occasions as they seemed familiar with the contents and layout of his home.

Detectives later recovered the firearms and Collins and Cota were arrested days later.

Authorities didn't immediately know Monday if either man has legal representation yet.
