Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff’s Department

ALBION – A 15-year-old boy was charged with unlawful possession of weapons on Wednesday after he allegedly possessed materials common to the construction of homemade bombs and/or improvised explosive devices, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department reported.

The department did not release the boy’s name and declined to say which town the boy lived in because of his likely status as a youthful offender. The boy was issued an appearance ticket to Family Court.

“We’re not at liberty to release a lot of information given that he’s a juvenile,” said Undersheriff Steven Smith.
