Two Bowie teens have been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and weapons offenses after Bowie police officers said they found them carrying ski masks as well as a stun gun and revolver Wednesday afternoon.
At around 1:30 Wednesday, police responded to a report of two "suspicious-looking" teenaged boys near the Shell Station in the 13000 block of Old Annapolis Road. The caller told police that the boys were "wearing dark colored clothing looking into vehicles in the area," according to the police report.
Police search the area and found two boys in the 6100 block of High Bridge Road matching the description provided by the caller. According to a police report, officers approached the boys and asked what they were doing in the area, and noticed both boys were in possession of dark colored ski masks.
Then, police proceeded to do a pat down of the suspects and police found a .38 caliber "snub-nose" revolver on one suspect and a "Black Barracuda Stun Gun" on the other suspect.
Both boys, Bowie residents ages 15 and 16, were placed in custody and taking to the Bowie Police Station where they were processed and charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, according to Bowie Police Chief John Nesky. One suspect was also charged with carrying a handgun and the other suspect was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, Nesky said.
The suspects were transported to Cheltenham Juvenile Correctional Facility.
