Teen To Be Charged As Juvie Under Plea Agreement


A teen being charged as an adult for trying to steal guns from Gene Taylor's Sporting Goods will now be charged as a juvenile under a plea agreement.

Evan Phillips, 16, is now expected to plead guilty in juvenile court on Friday.

Phillips and 16–year–old Broch Riddle were arrested after a four and a half hour standoff with the SWAT Team.

Police say the two were trying to steal 32 guns from the store when the alarm went off.

Riddle has been arrested for burglary before. No word if he's entered into a plea agreement as well.
