Ok loopysears i think i can answer as i have read into the wording, they possibly are wanted on another burglary, as highly unlikely that it was not a first time offence.

Well it says they are both wanted in connection with aggravated burglary. I would assume its the same one. Why would they mention it otherwise.

I mean why would they not mention details of the other burglary. Seems strange to give details of a normal
dwelling burglary then say they are wanted for aggravated burglary.

Agravated burgalry means that the burglar was carrying a weapon with intent to incapacitate any resistance.
Even though the property was empty it is assumed that any weapon that was carried would have been used to subdue anyone that got in their way should they have encountered them. The carrying of weapons was made clear in the report by saying the burgars "grabbed some knives". It would be assumed they did so in order that they could have used them as weapons.
I believe aggravated burglary carries a life sentance.

Wrong. Aggravated burglary is a burglary offence being committed with either a weapon, imitation firearm, firearm or explosives.

That is why the story clearly states 'then grabbed a knife'.
