Teens arrested after waving a handgun in Liberty

Published: Thu, November 12, 2009 @ 4:21 p.m.

LIBERTY — Two male teens went to Trumbull County Juvenile Justice Center after police responded to a call from a motorist about the three walking north on Shady Avenue and handling a gun. The incident was about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

When police arrived, they saw the juveniles with Joe Lukz, an assistant principal at Liberty High School, who waved the officers in his direction. Two of the teens ran but were apprehended by officers with the help of a police dog.

Police charged a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old, both from Youngstown, with juvenile offenses, criminal trespass, obstructing official business and carrying a concealed weapon. They were taken to the juvenile center. Another 17-year-old from Youngstown, charged with juvenile offenses and criminal trespass, was released to a relative. Police confiscated a loaded 45-caliber handgun.

Thank you officers for your part in a job well done.
Thanks go to the caller who cared enough to dial.
If more folks, like Mr. Lukz, did the right thing, more of these miscreants would be where they belong.
