Five teens from Storm Lake are under arrest after an investigation launched Friday night when a mother discovered two loaded handguns in her son’s bedroom in their Storm Lake apartment.
Cops believe three teens robbed a home in Storm Lake, stealing five guns and other items — then they started stashing the stolen loot with friends. By Saturday night cops in Storm Lake had recovered four of the guns and arrested four young men. Three were 14 years old. The fourth was 15.
On Sunday night at 10 o’clock, Storm Lake police got a call from cops in Colorado. The fifth teen Storm Lake police had been searching for was under arrest there and charged with breaking into a home in Trinidad, Colorado. The 16-year-old boy from Storm Lake was in Colorado with a 16-year-old girl from Schaller, Iowa. She has not been charged.
