MENTOR, OH (WOIO) - Two juvenile males, 14 and 15-years-old, were arrested Saturday for shoplifting in Mentor. One of the boys had an air gun on them.
The gun was found after the juvenile was detained.
According to the Mentor Police Department Facebook page, "Fortunately, the boy did not brandish it or use it in any way connected to the theft."
The juvenile claimed he found the gun and was carrying it for no specific reason.
His parents were notified and the gun was seized.
Mentor police say, "This is a very real and local example of how dangerous it is for juveniles to carry a weapon that cannot be distinguished from an actual firearm."
