It was a tense morning for White Rock residents Friday as police started spreading the word that a juvenile suspect was possibly armed and on the run and in the area.
Many White Rock residents were told to secure themselves in their houses while police searched for a pair of juveniles, at least one of which was believe to be armed.
According to Los Alamos Police Department, officer Ben Irving responded to a possible trespass on the 100 block of Grand Canyon Drive. When Irving tried to speak with the two males, they fled the scene.
Irving went after the juveniles on foot, starting the chase.
Police said one of the juveniles was a possible runaway, as well as a suspect in an aggravated burglary case that involved firearms.
Around 10:30 a.m. police apprehended the suspect on Rover Boulevard. After he was arrested, he was taken away in an ambulance.
An investigation by police uncovered what they believed to be stolen firearms. The firearms were discovered at the scene of the original trespassing.
During the pursuit Friday morning, one of the males returned to Grand Canyon and met with officers at the scene. The suspected runaway, however, disappeared a short time after the other met with the police.
In the course of its investigation, LAPD officers were able to pinpoint a location of the suspect.
