Police found the images and videos were posted on social media after seizing the teens' phones.

One video, which features rap music, is allegedly taken from inside a stolen car.

Other videos also show several bottles of alcohol and boys handling a firearm.

The teens were arrested at a property in Wurtulla on Friday where officers from the Criminal Investigation Branch Property Crime Task Force found alcohol, car keys, three watches and two rifles and ammunition buried in the backyard.

The car was found abandoned in Creekside Blvd, Currimundi, with a damaged tyre.
