Sacramento teen trades grandma’s guns for pot


The good news for those worried about the fate of the 14-year-old Sacramento boy arrested in Sacramento County, is that he is safe after a safe of his grandmother’s guns was ransacked and the firearms were taken.

The bad news: turns out the boy took the guns and traded them for pot.

Sherrif’s deputies say the boy  took a sledgehammer to her safe, took her two guns inside, and drove off with her car Monday night.

The AP reports two local schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution. Responding deputies located the boy.

"I don't think he knew we were there," a sheriffs spokesman said. "He stepped out of the vehicle to have a cigarette and he was taken into custody without incident."

The stolen guns were described as two 9 millimeter handguns.

The boy is now facing allegations of auto theft, grand theft and possession of stolen property.
