Rochester Teen Had Loaded Gun When Arrested
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester teenager had a loaded gun in his pocket when he was arrested Thursday for threatening another teen with a gun the day before.
Police say a plainclothes officer spotted 17 year old Michael Learmont downtown, mainly because of a distinctive tattoo on his face. While patting him down, the officer found the handgun. Police say Learmont later admitted it was the same gun he had threatened the other teen with Wednesday at the Oak Park Terrace mobile home park.
He has been charged as a juvenile but his case could be moved into adult court.
