Two teens arrested for stolen gun possession, drug sales
(ABC 6 News) – A 16-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy were charged with possession of stolen property and 5th-degree controlled substance sales after allegedly pointing a gun at a caller’s son Monday.
The 15-year-old boy faces an additional charge of aggravated robbery.
At about 11:15 a.m., Olmsted County Deputies responded to the 3000 block of 18th Avenue SW in Rochester Township for a firearm call.
Capt. James Schueller with the OCSO said the male caller told deputies that when a strange vehicle pulled up to the house, his son went out to see what the driver wanted.
The caller said there were two teens in the car, and the 15-year-old boy pointed a gun at the son and told him to empty his pockets.
When the son told them he didn’t have any money or items in his pockets, the caller said they drove away.
The caller later told deputies that the teenage girl involved in the incident had been banned from their home, but was friends with a foster child living there.
Rochester police located the vehicle at an apartment building in the 3900 block of 19th Avenue NW, Schueller said.
According to the sheriff’s office, the gun was a glock handgun that was reported stolen from Owatonna in 2021.
The two teens were taken to the Dakota County Juvenile Detention Center, Schueller said.
