Two men have been formally charged by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for allegedly breaking into the home of U.S. Congresswoman and Los Angeles mayoral candidate Karen Bass and stealing two firearms.

District Attorney George Gascón announced that Patricio Munoz, 42, and Juan Espinoza, 24, were each charged with one felony count of first-degree residential burglary and two counts of grand theft of a firearm.

The two were arraigned Friday at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in downtown Los Angeles.

The pair are accused of breaking into Bass’s home in Baldwin Vista last Friday and stealing two handguns which Bass said were “safely and securely stored” in a lockbox. No other valuables were stolen from her home, she said.
