ACWORTH, Ga. -- Acworth Police have charged two Missouri teenagers with stealing a truck at gunpoint.
The victim told investigators his GMC truck was taken July 1 at around 1:30 a.m. in the 5000 block of Cherokee Street, just north of Logan Farm Park. He described the suspects as two young white men.
Police later found the GMC's license plate in a trash can, then later located the truck outside Acworth city limits.
They also found an abandoned Volkswagen Beetle without a license plate on Collins Circle. Acworth Police Capt. Mark Cheatham said investigators ran the Beetle's VIN and determined it had been reported stolen in Missouri.
Evidence in both cases led police to 17-year-old Cody Michael Kelley Gains and a 16-year-old suspect. Cheatham said both teens were being investigated by the Jefferson County (Mo.) Sheriff's Office for a number of armed robberies, including that of the Beetle.
