Three juveniles were arrested after police received a call at 1:52 p.m. about thefts from a drug store at the 500 block of East Monroe St.

The manager of the CVS store provided a description of the suspects, and police arrested a boy, 13, and a boy, 16. A store video allegedly shows one boy stealing beef jerky and the other boy stealing a cigarette lighter and Visine eye drop solution.

A third person, a juvenile who ran from a garage near the scene, was arrested on a warrant for receiving stolen property, theft and a probation violation.

The third juvenile was found to have six rounds of ammunition in his pocket. Police searched the garage with the permission of the owner and found a .22-caliber handgun. The third juvenile also faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and tampering with evidence, police said.
