Two Local Juveniles Charged with Armed Robbery
DARTMOUTH — Dartmouth Police officers arrested two juveniles on Saturday afternoon after responding to an alleged armed robbery at Dollar General located on Dartmouth Street.
Police responded to the call around 4:45 p.m. and spoke to a juvenile victim who told the officers that two males on bicycles, one of whom displayed a firearm and a knife in the waistline of his pants, had stolen his Airpods when he exited the store.
Dartmouth Police officers began a search of the area and were able to develop information that led them to identify the two suspects as juveniles who live within close proximity.
With the assistance of their parents, both suspects were eventually identified, and a BB gun which matched the description of the gun brandished during the commission of the crime was seized as evidence.
As a result of the incident, one juvenile male from Dartmouth and one juvenile male from New Bedford were placed under arrest and charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
No one was injured as a result of the incident. Both juveniles will be arraigned at a later date.
