The juveniles have not been named.  The police recovered several firearms, one was a shotgun stolen from a car in the Reservoir area; two other firearms were stolen from a car in Flowood.

I hope I read this wrong.... the vehicles were unlocked, and there were firearms in those vehicles?

So, anyone, including young children, could walk up to one of those cars/trucks, open the door and retrieve a firearm?

Tell me it ain't so. That is absolute irresponsible gun-owner behavior.

Not sure what is more disturbing.

Maybe one of those thieves actually prevented a 5 year old from arming themselves.

^ Thank you! I have noticed a real problem with people not being responsible with their firearms lately.
