Baltimore Teens Indicted for Gun Crimes, Carjacking

Six Baltimore teens who allegedly broke into a Park Heights storage unit in 2015 and stole more than 60 weapons have been indicted on theft charges, as well as carjacking offenses. State prosecutors say that federal agents conducted an exhaustive investigation over the last year, gathering evidence against the six, who range in age from 17 to 19. All have been charged as adults.

The teenagers all face multiple counts, with some charged with nearly 200 crimes, according to court documents. Authorities say the six repeatedly broke into the storage locker in the 5300 block of Park Heights Avenue and then drove around various neighborhoods attempting to sell the firearms they has stolen. Police reports indicate that the weapons included handguns, shotguns and high-powered rifles. They also contend that some of the weapons sold were used to commit other crimes, including carjackings.
