Police: 2 Teens Stole Handgun From Locked Cruiser

 DELRAY BEACH – Two teenagers are behind bars after they allegedly broke into a police officer’s cruiser and stole his department-issued handgun, which was left under the seat, police said.

One of the teens, 17, used a pry tool to open the door while his 16-year-old accomplice stood watch, police said. The suspects, charged as juveniles, are not being named because of their ages. However, detectives will push to have them tried as adults.

The officer remains on duty while his agency reviews the incident. Department policy requires that any gun left inside a police car is locked up or mounted.

The suspects fired rounds from the gun and at least one said he wanted to kill an officer, police said. Another told officers that he was a member of a gang.
