LYNDHURST, OH (WOIO) -

Lyndhurst police arrested three teenagers Sunday after a license plate scan alerted an officer that the car they were driving was stolen.

The car was parked and empty when the officer used his license plate reader, leading officers to stake out the stolen vehicle.

When the teens returned, they were brought into custody and a search of the car was conducted.

Police found two loaded handguns, one of which had been stolen from East Cleveland.

Quentay Jamear Parks, 18, of Cleveland, has been charged with receiving stolen property and carrying a concealed weapon.

Charges are also pending against two other suspects, both age 17.
