15-year-old charged with felonies involving firearm

A 15-year-old Seymour juvenile was arrested Tuesday on felony charges of criminal recklessness, intimidation, pointing a firearm and theft, police report.

Patrol officers with the Seymour Police Department received information about an incident involving possible criminal recklessness and intimidation at a home on the northeast side of the city that had occurred about a month or so ago, according to a news release from Lt. C.J. Foster.

Foster said during the investigation, patrol officers learned a juvenile had fired a handgun inside the home multiple times and pointed the weapon at another juvenile.

After specific information was obtained, police obtained a Jackson Superior Court 1 search warrant for the home, Foster said.

He said as that search began, investigators located evidence of a controlled substance and obtained another search warrant to search the location for more evidence of controlled substances.

During the search, police found a stolen handgun, more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition, evidence of the handgun being fired in the residence, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Foster said.
