North Dakota Teens Arrested In Crime Spree

North Dakota Teens Arrested In Crime Spree

Two North Dakota teens are facing a long list of charges including robbery after being arrested in Sioux Falls this week.  Police say the two 15-year-old boys went on a crime spree that started in Fargo.

Through their investigation, police say they were able to determine that the two teenage boys were responsible for a hold up at the Shop N Cart convenience store at 6th Street and Cleveland Avenue last week.

Police believe the runaways had stolen a car in Fargo before traveling to Sioux Falls.  They discovered that stolen vehicle at Majestic View apartments south of 18th Street. 

"I think the car at Majestic View had been there for a while, but I don't know exactly how long," police information officer Sam Clemens said.

Authorities say the two teens then stole another vehicle after they pointed a gun at a man on Monday morning. 

Later that evening on East 18th Street, police say a 12-year-old girl said two men knocked on her apartment door, threatened her with a gun and took her cell phone.

"When that was called in, I think they were both in the car and they ran from the scene, so they were able to trace them back to that car," Clemens said.

A half hour later, police caught up to the teens around 26th Street and Bahnson Avenue.  They ran away again, this time pointing the same gun at an officer.

After their arrest, police determined the gun they used during their crime spree was a BB gun.

Names of the teenagers have not been released. They both face charges of first-degree robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a stolen vehicle and petty theft.
