WESTMINSTER - Westminster police say five juveniles are facing charges connected to the cache of weapons found on Standley Lake High School grounds last week.
A campus supervisor discovered three hunting rifles and a shotgun between two sheds by the athletic fields last Wednesday. The school was on lockout shortly after the guns were found.
Police say the guns were stolen from a home that backs directly up to the athletic fields at the school. Police say there was not a direct threat to the high school.
Two of the five juveniles are facing misdemeanor charges of theft by receiving. Their identities have not been released.
The other three male juveniles face felony charges of second-degree burglary, possession of deadly weapons on educational property and interfering with staff, faculty at an educational institution.
Those facing felony charges were identified as Francesco Di Falco and Lorenzo Casas, both 16. Westminster Police are in the process of obtaining an arrest warrant for the third juvenile.
