A 14-year-old responsible for several robberies in Cleveland was arrested Wednesday with a fake gun, a Cleveland police source told 

The source tells the teen was arrested at a home in Cleveland. Officers confiscated the gun, which was loaded with fake bullets and did not have an orange tip. 

The boy was allegedly involved in recent robberies on the west side. 

Police say the family knew the boy had a pellet gun. 

Another 14-year-old was arrested with a fake gun in Akron. The teen was allegedly stealing ornaments out of a yard when a homeowner came out to confront him. That's when the teen pulled out a realistic-looking BB gun and pointed it at the homeowner. He fled the seen but was later arrested on Sunset Avenue.
