More guns recovered, police say

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Four stolen guns have been recovered as part of an investigation into an incident in which a Berryville High School student allegedly brought a stolen gun to school two weeks ago, Berryville Police Department Lt. Robert Bartos said Monday.

The student who allegedly brought the gun to school and another student alleged to have been involved in stealing several guns from a local pawn shop were arrested on gun-related charges Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Bartos said six guns were stolen from the pawn shop.

"Right now we're just missing one. I want parents to know there's four less guns out there," Bartos said.

Bartos reported on Oct. 29 that one student was charged with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm on school grounds, and another students was charged with felony theft of firearms and burglary. Because the students are juveniles, Bartos said he could not release their identities.

Marilyn Ferrier, who works with the Carroll County Circuit Clerk's office, said the students went before a judge on Friday and were ordered to remain in the Benton County Juvenile Detention Center. Ferrier said the students have another hearing on Friday, Nov. 13.

  • Keep them in the juvy jail. If they are doing this kind of crime at such and early age, they will likely continue. Their parents apparently have not taught them right from wrong so they too should suffer.
