BB Gun Theft At Centralia Wal-mart FoiledCentralia Police say three runaways from One Hope United were arrested after allegedly trying to steal two BB guns from the Wal-mart Store. Police were later told the group of 15 and 16 year olds planned to use the guns to rob a gas station.
Wal-mart officials called police Saturday morning after they saw the three allegedly jump the fence in the garden center with the BB guns in hand. The three were chased to the Regents Bank facility across West McCord Street where they were taken into custody.
One of the three was taken to the Clinton County Jail at Carlyle for later transfer to juvenile detention. The other two were released back to the staff of One Hope United. Two other runaways from the children's home were reportedly with the other three, but not involved in the retail theft. They were also returned to the home.
