GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WJZ)—In Anne Arundel County, three teens face felony theft charges after police say they confessed to stealing ammunition owned by the federal government.

Mike Schuh has the story.

It all started as a routine traffic stop led to a tabletop of air marshal ammo.

“At approx 1:50 a.m. officers were on routine patrol at Hammonds Lane and Robinwood Road,” said Lt. T.J. Smith, Anne Arundel County Police.

They say a car driven by Brandon Shreve hit a curb and drove away, parking with the lights off.

“Officers approached that vehicle, and they noticed, in plain view, loads and loads of ammunition,” Smith said.

They recovered 70 boxes with 50 .357 caliber rounds per box. That’s a total of 3,500 bullets.

Police said none of the teens could come up with a reason why they had so much ammo, and this was special ammo.

“It ultimately came to our attention that a storage shed that is owned by the U.S. Air Marshals Service [was robbed],” Smith said.

In addition, burglary tools were found, including a bolt cutter.

“An 18-year-old and two 16 and 15-year-old juveniles were involved in this, and it seems like it’s an isolated incident of teenagers being teenagers, but this is a serious case,” Smith said.

All three were arrested. Only Shreve was identified as he’s over 18.

Court records indicate the 16-year-old is from Glen Burnie, and the 15-year-old is from Baltimore.
