Two Loudoun County teenagers have been charged in connection with a Thursday robbery in Lansdowne involving vape pods, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
The LCSO reportedly responded to the area of Kipheart Drive and Riverside Parkway around 2:45 p.m. Thursday after a resident saw three teenagers in an altercation in his backyard.
One of the subjects involved in the altercation said he had arranged a meeting with the other juveniles to sell the vape pods, according to the LCSO.
The suspects then took the vape pods without paying for them and a confrontation ensued. One of the suspects brandished what was later determined to be a replica bb gun. The bb gun and other items associated with the incident were later located discarded in the area.
Both teenagers, whose names are not being released because they are juveniles, have been charged with robbery. The juvenile who displayed the bb gun is also charged with brandishing a firearm.
The sheriff's office thanked the community for assisting with the investigation.
