One St. Louis neighborhood is on guard after a home was raided by six gun-toting teens.
Landon Cremeens, Matthew Peterson, Caleb Hester and Nikolas Kebrdle, who are all 18, along with 17-year-olds Kerion James and Carlos Perkins, were charged with an armed home invasion and robbery.
“It’s a fairly quiet neighborhood, fairly quiet area,” one terrified neighbor said. “I’ve never felt unsafe but it’s a little disturbing.”
The young men were accused of raiding a West County apartment in the Missouri city around 10:30 p.m. Saturday armed with a Glock pistol, two AK-47s and other weapons, which they used to hold at least two people before stealing their wallets.
The AK-47s were later recovered from a truck police say belonged to Cremeens.
The youths, all high school students, are currently being held on a $250,000 bail at the St. Louis County Jail.
“It definitely makes me more on guard, making sure my doors are locked, comings and goings, and it’s really dark back here at night,” the terrified neighbor said. “It’s not properly lit.”
