SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Police say five teenagers have been arrested on multiple gun and drug charges in southeast Georgia.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Sonny Cohrs said Saturday that officers from the Undercover Narcotics Investigation Team observed the teens holding firearms while posing for photos on a park bench and concealing them in their waistbands.

Cohrs says officers seized four handguns, a rifle, marijuana and several rounds of miscellaneous ammunition. The teens were arrested Friday.

Cohrs says the 18-year-old Jason Hazel is charged with carrying a concealed firearm, possession of marijuana and possession of a drug related object. The 17-year-old and two 16-year-old males have been charged with possession of a handgun under 18 and carrying a concealed firearm.

Another 16-year-old was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
