Three Arab teens from the Jerusalem-area village of Hizmeh were under arrest Tuesday for allegedly robbing the home of former Supreme Court deputy president Menachem Elon, police said. The three youths are suspected of breaking into Elon's Jerusalem home in February, and stealing tens of thousands of shekels of money and jewelry, Jerusalem police spokeswoman Sigal Toledo said. Elon and his wife, who were woken up by the night-time robbery, were tied up and threatened during the heist. A search of one of the suspects' home uncovered cartridges with bullets, the police said. The three suspects, who were apprehended on Monday night, were brought to a Jerusalem court on Tuesday for a remand hearing.
