Illegal Guns Land Kern County Teen In Jail

The Kern County Probation Department has taken two guns and the youth who possessed them off the street, possibly preventing another shooting. The officers conducted a probation search Tuesday at the home of a teenager who was on active probation.

During the search, they found not one, but two 9mm semi automatic pistols and live ammunition.

The teen was taken into custody and the weapons were seized, preventing them from being used in any illegal manner.

The investigation continues to discover how the youth acquired the guns.
