Officers arrived on the scene within minutes and saw two boys – aged 11 and 14 – running from the store, carrying handguns, ammunition, magazines and long guns.

Due to the weight, the miners dropped the stolen items and fled on foot in different directions, Master Sgt. said Julie Green during a press conference.

The 14-year-old kept an AR gun but dumped it near the store. Officers caught the two boys and they were arrested.

Investigators determined that the boys allegedly attempted to shut off power to the store before breaking in through the back door. Inside, the boys ransacked the business before stealing the aforementioned items, Green said.

All items have been accounted for and retrieved.

Green said the two boys entered the store the day before the robbery and looked around. The business owner told the boys to leave, which they did without incident.

The 14-year-old suspect is on probation for robbery with a weapon, burglary and criminal mischief. He was also previously arrested for threatening to harm another minor with a weapon on social media.

The two suspects have been charged with 22 counts of grand theft of a firearm, one count of armed robbery, one count of criminal mischief over $1,000, one count of non-violent resistance and possession of probation violation.
