SELBY, S.D. (AP) – Five teenagers are in custody after allegedly running away from a treatment center, stealing guns and a vehicle and holding up a gas station in the north central South Dakota town of Selby.
Authorities say the teens ran away from a Corson County treatment center on Monday, rummaged through cars and found guns in Mobridge then broke into an auto shop east of the town and stole a van.
The robbery in Selby occurred about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. Authorities say the teens pointed a shotgun and a rifle at the clerk and fled with cash and tobacco. An officer in Potter County later pulled them over. Authorities say the teens tried to flee on foot. Three were caught immediately and the other two after a search by land and air.
