New Orleans police say officers on Carnival parade crowd patrol chased a teen who was acting suspiciously and found that he had a gun belonging to the Jefferson Parish sheriff's office.
Police spokeswoman Remi Braden says the 16-year-old had a bulge in his waistband. Officers followed him, thinking it might be a gun. He started running, and dropped the gun as police closed in.
Braden says that once the officers arrested the youth, they picked up a 9mm with 17 live rounds. She says it had been stolen from a Jefferson Parish sheriff's office vehicle while it was
parked in New Orleans.
The teenager's name was not released because he's a juvenile. Braden says he was booked with possessing a firearm, concealing a
firearm and possessing stolen property.
