Two juveniles arrested for simple burglary, unreported gun recovered 

 Kenner - Two fifteen-year-old male juveniles were arrested Friday (October 20, 2017) concerning a vehicle burglary that occurred in the 3400 block of Ole Miss Drive, in Kenner.  One juvenile was charged with the crimes of simple burglary and possession of a handgun by a juvenile.  The second juvenile was charged with simple burglary.    

 On Friday, October 20, 2017, one of the arrested juvenileís mother, contacted the Kenner Police Department Criminal Investigations Division to report that she had located a handgun in her sonís school bag.  The mother met with police and relinquished the handgun.  Upon speaking to the juvenile, he admitted he and another acquaintance had committed a vehicle burglary (vehicle unlocked) in the 3400 block of Ole Miss Drive, in Kenner, on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.    The juvenile advised he and the other acquaintance had also committed other vehicle burglaries in the area, where the handgun was taken from an unlocked vehicle.  The Kenner Police Department located the report concerning the reported vehicle burglary on Ole Miss, but have no reported burglaries where a handgun was stolen.  Upon conducting a check of the serial number, the handgun is not listed as stolen.  The Kenner Police Department will be conducting an ATF firearm trace in an attempt to locate the owner of the unreported handgun.   

 The two juveniles were transported to the Rivarde Detention Center, pending a continued custody hearing.  

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser encourages residents roll up their windows, lock their doors, and to keep valuables out of site to prevent vehicle burglaries.  Anyone who is missing a handgun, that they believe was stolen during the above incident, can contact Detective Nick Engler, with the make, model, and serial number to confirm if the gun, which is in the possession of the Kenner Police Department belongs to them.  Detective Engler can be reached at (504) 712-2410.
