NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. – A gun stolen last month from an unlocked vehicle in Neptune Beach was just recovered from a vehicle that crashed while trying to avoid being pulled over by police, according to the Neptune Beach Police Department.
After crashing into a ditch, a teenager in the car ran from officers, but was taken into custody.
Police said the juvenile suspect had 344 grams of marijuana, over $1,000 cash and drug paraphernalia with him during the arrest.
"We can't urge you enough: LOCK your vehicles. Firearms should never be left inside an unattended vehicle or overnight," Neptune Beach police posted on the department's Facebook page.
