JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State University police say they found six teenagers with a stolen vehicle and gun in a campus parking garage.
KAIT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1pwdotC ) police say the teens were stopped in a stolen Kia Optima on Saturday. The officer says a bullet, a spent casing, knives and beer were found in the car. One teen told police they had discarded a gun.
Police say that story changed after one teen's mother arrived. They say a teenager admitted that the gun was in a backpack and that it was stolen.
Police charged one minor with theft of a vehicle and possession of a firearm. The five others were cited for minors in possession of alcohol.
Police haven't released their names or ages. It's unclear if they are students.
