Teens steal ammo

Published 11:12pm Friday, January 11, 2013

Two juveniles — ages 13 and 17 — were arrested Friday morning for shoplifting 100 rounds of shotgun shells from the Central Alabama Farmers Cooperative Thursday.

The juveniles are being held in detention under theft third and will remain in custody until they have a juvenile hearing next week. The suspects were not caught during the act, but video surveillance helped lead to their arrest.

“They had a video of [the juveniles] and we had somebody identify [them],” Dallas County Chief Deputy Randy Pugh said. “And that’s when we knew who [they] were and went and placed [them] in detention,”

Pugh said the juveniles were arrested at school Friday morning.

“We’re not going to release the name of the schools,” he said. “But they are students here in the Dallas County area.”

Pugh said the stolen shotgun shells have a cost between $75 and $100.
