Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies have captured a 15-year-old boy sought for allegedly breaking into the home of a relative and stealing guns, ammunition and a silencer, according to a Friday sheriff’s office tweet.
Authorities arrested the boy without incident and recovered four of the stolen weapons but are still searching for two guns, according to a tweet.
Two others, including 18-year-old Isaiah Lainez, were arrested at the Conifer home. Lainez has been arrested for investigation of two counts of burglary, said a news release by Mike Taplin, sheriff’s office spokesman. The other person arrested was a juvenile.
The sheriff’s office obtained an arrest warrant Thursday for the 15-year-old boy’s after he violated conditions of his pre-trial release by fleeing and allegedly stealing the guns from a relative’s home in Pine, according to news releases. The boy was considered armed and dangerous.
The teen previously had been arrested for separate gun charges and had been released from Mount View Youth Services Center with an ankle monitor.
