14-year-old Boy Arrested for Possessing Ghost Guns and Illegal Ammunition Magazine, After Lying about being Robbed

DATE/TIME: Thursday, April 21, 2022 / 11:33 a.m.

INCIDENT: Possession of Undetectable Firearm (Ghost Gun) and High-Capacity Magazine

LOCATION: 11800 block of Linden Street, unincorporated Bloomington

VICTIM: State of California

SUSPECT: 14-year-old male

SUMMARY: On Thursday, April 21, 2022, at about 11:33 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a possible armed suspect in the 11800 block of Linden Street. The reporting party told deputies a 14-year-old male told his family he was threatened by a subject with a firearm, who stole money from him, and was outside of their residence. 

Deputies arrived, located a vehicle described in the call, and completed a high-risk traffic stop. All the involved parties were safely detained. Through investigation, deputies determined the 14-year-old stole from his family and offered the money to other people. The alleged robbery and threats were determined to be unfounded. During the investigation, the 14-year-old male was found to be in possession of two different undetectable firearms, commonly known as “Ghost Guns,” and an unlawful high-capacity magazine. 

The 14-year-old suspect was arrested for both charges. He was issued a citation and released to his parents. This was one of two incidents on the same day, which resulted in deputies recovering a total of four “Ghost Guns.”
