A 15-year-old boy was ar­rested Wed­nes­day af­ter re­port­edly hav­ing a muz­zle loader that of­fi­cers be­lieve was stolen from a car ear­lier in the week.

Po­lice ini­tially came to the in­ci­dent af­ter be­ing told there was a ju­ve­nile male point­ing a pis­tol at other peo­ple. When they ar­rived the teen al­legedly ad­mit­ted to point­ing the gun at oth­ers but said a friend had taken the pis­tol.

Of­fi­cers had not passed an­other ju­ve­nile on the way there, so they checked a util­ity room and found a black muz­zle loader un­der­neath some cloth­ing near a wash­ing ma­chine. Of­fi­cers were aware that a muz­zle loader match­ing that de­scrip­tion was stolen the day be­fore.

The teen was taken into cus­tody and of­fi­cers called his fa­ther. By the time the fa­ther ar­rived po­lice had also lo­cated a BB pis­tol in the cloth­ing as well. Af­ter pres­sure from his fa­ther, the teen re­port­edly gave his fa­ther a jar of black pow­der and he said he would at­tempt to get his son to find the rest of the miss­ing ammo pouch that had also been stolen.

The teen was charged with theft by re­ceiv­ing.
