A 15-year-old Pasadena boy was arrested in front of Northeast High School Wednesday after an officer found a .25-caliber handgun in his pocket, police said.

The youth, of the 1100 block of Ridge Drive, was charged with possession of a handgun on school property and carrying a handgun.

Officers were called to the school in the 1100 block of Duvall Highway about 3:45 p.m. after someone reported that a boy was walking around in front of the school and that he may be armed.

Officer Anthony Miles confronted the boy in the school driveway, searched him and found the unloaded handgun and an unloaded magazine, the police report said.

Man charged in theft from auto parts store

A Pasadena man was arrested and charged with stealing $620 worth of parts from an auto shop, county police said.

Brian Schmidt, 23, of the 100 block of Dunlap Road was charged with burglary and felony theft.

A neighbor of the Marley Auto Service store called police about 4:40 a.m and told them a man was climbing over the store's rear fence and loading items on the back of his truck.

Police stopped a truck fitting the description given by the neighbor a short distance from the store in the 2300 block of Mountain Road and found several radiators and bumpers in the truck bed, police said.

Police called the business owner, who went to the store and discovered nine radiators and four bumpers were missing from a rear storage area, police said.

The owner later identified the items in the truck bed as the ones taken from his business, police said.
