Teen arrested after demanding car keys

NEW CASTLE — A teenager who demanded a couple turn over their car to him is now in police custody.

Neshannock Township police said a 17-year-old New Castle resident entered a home in Lightner Place at 4 a.m. Saturday and demanded the keys to a vehicle parked in the driveway.

Police said the suspect fled after the homeowner ordered him to leave and started to call the police.

Officers said the teen was located a short time later at a Mercer Road address and taken into custody.

He was lodged in the Krause Shelter pending charges of burglary, robbery, criminal trespass, loitering and prowling at night and public drunkenness.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
