Just 24 hours after meeting with Petersburg's Assistant Fire Marshal about a CVS smoke bomb incident, two of the three teens involved are now facing new charges, this time for an incident involving a BB gun. On June 2nd, surveillance camera video shows three teens at the entrance to the CVS on Crater Road in Petersburg. "One looked like he was the lookout, the other one looked like he was holding the doors open for the one to light it and throw it in there," said Assistant Fire Marshal Marlow Jones. The item thrown into the store appears to have been a smoke bomb. Jones says they are still investigating where it came from, adding that the teens told him they bought it at a local store. When it hit the floor, it left a scorch mark where it ignited.
