Alert security officer helps nab armed juvenile www.privateofficer.com
Sacramento CA Aug 16 2010 An alert security guard at a state office building in Sacramento helped police nab a juvenile who apparently changed his mind about throwing away a loaded gun, police said.
A security guard at the 1000 block of I Street was monitoring the building via security camera when three people near 11th and I streets appeared to place something in a garbage can shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday.
The guard looked in the can, found a revolver, and called police.
Officers arrived, found that the .38 caliber revolver was loaded, and booked it into evidence, said Sacramento Police spokesman Officer Konrad von Schoech.
Then, 25 minutes later, the guard called police again. This time, the individuals had returned and apparently were looking for the gun.
Police responded, detained the three on 10th Street just south of J Street.
After talking to them, police arrested a 16-year-old male for investigation of gun possession
