LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say a car linked to two teens shot and killed during an alleged home burglary on Thanksgiving Day contained prescription drugs stolen from another house.
    
Nicholas Brady and Haile Kifer were killed last Thursday in the home of Byron Smith, who is charged with murder.
    
Officials say a car seized after the shootings contained prescriptions that belong to Richard Johnson, a retired English teacher.
    
Johnson says he returned from a trip to Spain on Sunday to find his house ransacked.
    
He says in addition to the prescriptions, foreign coins and pennies were taken. He says the friend who was watching his house had been there last Wednesday, and everything was fine.
    
Authorities say Brady was seen near Johnson's home last Wednesday night, the day before he was killed.
