Several teens were detained at the Shell gas station on Port Chicago Hwy. in N. Concord after the teens were allegedly seen with a gun, according to a witness.

The kids were pulled over after leaving a home in the area of Thunderbird Dr., which is off Port Chicago Hwy.

The witness said the teens were also smoking marijuana.

It is currently unknown if a gun was found.

Thanks to Dana for the picture!

UPDATE: Concord Police say a fake gun (that looked exactly like a real gun) was located, and no drugs were found. All the teens were released.

Good. I hope they learn their lesson.

2 AldrigeFamily April 1, 2014 at 6:20 PM

awesome, thanks CPD and neighbor that called this in

3 Mike "troll" Dame April 1, 2014 at 6:40 PM

4 Fitgirl April 1, 2014 at 6:43 PM

Olympic or Alliance kids?

“But it’s medicine”.

‘Hope to the libtards who are happy with your permissive laws with regards to marijuana.

Several teens? Hopefully it was nothing more a clueless, idiotic public display of an Airsoft gun, but either way I hope the officers gave them a stern lecture about gun etiquette.

7 Really April 1, 2014 at 7:01 PM

Well, I think there is no crime to consume

8 Really April 1, 2014 at 7:03 PM

Maybe to drive under the influence…. How do they measure that?

9 a April 1, 2014 at 7:06 PM

If i’m a bored, bitter, old nosy neighbor who has nothing better to do than get upset over teens smoking pot, I might call the cops and say “i think i saw a gun” too.

10 Just me April 1, 2014 at 7:14 PM

Ehh. Their names won’t be released so what’s the point

11 instagramma April 1, 2014 at 7:16 PM

no shocker there.I know the area well, always has been a bit seedy.

12 Dorothy April 1, 2014 at 7:23 PM

Better now before someone gets hurt or killed.

This a Aprils fools day joke

I heard two gun shots near Oliver’s rd around 6:00

That’s nothing new.

Marijuana and other drug use rots the brain thus keeping its users in the middle and under class.

Congratulations… you’re winners.

Too close for comfort! I live on Claudia near N 6th!

Got meth?

BOOK EM DANO!

22 April fools April 1, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Is this a April fools joke

23 mika April 1, 2014 at 9:01 PM

Olympic or Alliance students? Maybe they were De La Salle kids? Kidding aside, teens smoke pot, its just not at the continuation schools.

24 To Fitgirl April 1, 2014 at 9:06 PM

That’s not a fair assumption. If you want to see drug use, look at Northgate kids! They have lots more money etc to support their habits. Have volunteered at that school, and was appalled at what I witnessed!

25 ChampagneKitty April 1, 2014 at 9:31 PM

No, the area is not seedy. An older neighborhood, yes; a few problem spots, yes, but I wouldn’t call the whole area “seedy”.

26 Michelle April 1, 2014 at 10:03 PM

Are there any updates to this, who were the teens and did they have a gun?

27 Pro Fi April 1, 2014 at 10:26 PM

Yeah… using marijuana in N. Concord, locally grown at 5555 Merritt Dr. in Concord (behind Pine Hollow Middle School)… supporting the local economy?

28 Cracky McGee April 1, 2014 at 10:57 PM

Thank you to the alert citizen who called this in!! NO group of teens should be driving around Claycord, reeking of pot and possessing a firearm (fake or not) … It’s pretty damn sad that it seemed like such a silly April Fools joke to many of you !

29 Anon April 1, 2014 at 11:37 PM

Oh no Marihuana? What has this world become oh lord almighty?!?!

30 Bang Ding Ow April 1, 2014 at 11:37 PM

Why the fake gun? Sounds pretty sketchy to me.

31 anon April 2, 2014 at 5:54 AM

A fake gun can get you killed!

32 Tim April 2, 2014 at 7:01 AM

Isn’t driving under the influence of marijuana illegal? How do cops measure for this? I see a lot of this lately, kids stoned and driving around…. that is just as dangerous as drinking/driving…… you can defend marijuana use all you want, but driving around while high is dangerous to everyone on the road

33 MaryJane April 2, 2014 at 7:49 AM

@23 Really? You imbecile. I attended Summit, which is like Olympic, and I can assure you that almost every student participated in at least smoking weed. Some did harder drugs. The kind of drugs you’d find at nicer schools like CVCHS are prescription pills, whereas you’re more likely to find cocaine or meth at Summit, Olympic, and Alliance.

@18 Get off your high horse. You know it’s your generation that caused my generation to be the way we are. I’m sorry, I didn’t know it was my fault that I couldn’t afford college because it’s $13,000 per semester. Why don’t I get a job? Well because of old people like you refusing to hire young workers like me, i’m forced to get a basic, minimum wage job. One that certainly would not pay for a year of college.. I’m sorry that I relax after my 15 hour school day with a joint. I’m sorry that because I don’t have the same morals and beliefs as you that I must not be able to make it into the upper class. I think most of all, i’m sorry that I was born into a different generation than you, because you know, I had a choice…

34 Anon April 2, 2014 at 8:46 AM

It was a bb gun. The kids go to Concord High you ignorant dicks. Don’t blame everything on the continuation schools. Open your eyes.

35 @MaryJane April 2, 2014 at 8:57 AM

Well said!!! And you’re absolutely right.

36 Don P - N. Concord April 2, 2014 at 9:25 AM

Drugs exist in every social class. I knew a kid who went to Acalanes and admitted to smoking crack at school.

37 Poor MaryJane! April 2, 2014 at 9:27 AM

So sorry things are so terribly rotten in your pathetic life. Blaming others won’t buy you a cup of coffee however. Just wait till you’re 63, impoverished, can’t get a minimum wage job because you’re too old, all they want are young bodies with fresh memory capacity, and you have no idea where your next meal is coming from. Who’re you going to blame then?

38 Jesse April 2, 2014 at 9:33 AM

For all those people saying thank god they got cought, there was no gun ever found and no weed found. Also thanks for the sterio type that it was kids from a continuation school. PS there not all bad kids and we have kids that carry guns at all the schools.

39 OhSoCasual April 2, 2014 at 9:34 AM

They were smoking the Devil’s REEFER??? OMG that’s CRAZY

40 MrDioji April 2, 2014 at 11:37 AM

I agree that the area is not “seedy’. There are the occasional “characters”, but it is a generally very nice area.

41 Cowellian April 2, 2014 at 11:57 AM

What type is a sterio?

42 #37 all the non-Baby Boomers are currently living that life... April 2, 2014 at 12:31 PM

…thanks TO the Baby Boomers. MaryJane is coming off a little whiny, but her points are valid (it’s hard for everyone and yeah, in the early years you gotta grind those crappy jobs…beware of the student loan trap as well).

You Baby Boomers, though, had it made under the sun. You were handed an incredible post-war industrial infrastructure with an insane lead against the rest of the world’s economy. Housing and the cost of living was ridiculously affordable compared to today (a middle class family could be supported off ONE income up until the 80’s).

I mean, think about it. You had middle class workers who could afford to own a home, who couldn’t even READ. There was an illiteracy epidemic, of all things, in your generation and a high school diploma was seen as a “leg up” in the work force (dear lord…today, you have to go into 100K of debt to earn a college degree and be considered on par with the rest of the work force). I can’t even fathom how skill-less you’d have to be, compared to today, to be unemployable in your time period. That’s how sweet the pre-Baby Boomers set you guys up, and they had to deal with a crippling depression and 2 horrific world wars building it.

But…Hey, thanks for selling off our industries to foreign countries, putting corporations into positions of political power, sky rocketing the cost of living, putting your kids through 3 wasteful wars (and who knows how many proxy wars), and creating a hostile work environment that keeps the average worker desperate and fearful. Your generation also has a thing for killing our safety nets (unemployment, Obamacare, and welfare programs), but not your own (don’t you dare touch Medicaid or social security for anyone over 55!).

You have no idea where your next meal is coming from? I know plenty of 20, 30, and 40 year old professionals who deal with the same question every day. Welcome to 2014. You built it for us, now at least have the decency to lie in it.

43 Cannabis enthusiast April 2, 2014 at 12:39 PM

Seriously? how can you people be SO uninformed! First as they said there were no drugs or guns found, second so what if someone has a gun? You know we still have the right to have a gun too, right? Now to cannabis. First, have you ever read any research on the subject? Probably not. Do any of you know that on average cannabis users make MORE money then non users? Or that users have HIGHER IQ then non users? Cannabis has also been shown to promote braincell growth in rats.
By the way the MYTH about it killing brain cells is from a study where they pumped thick smoke into a gas mask strapped onto monkeys for 6 minutes! That’s brain cell death from lack of oxygen. You also need to stop thinking that your rich neighbors aren’t smoking and that the poor areas use more. I would much rather have a teen smoking cannabis, a plant that its IMPOSSIBLE to od on, then alcohol, a drug that can kill a teen with as little as a 6 pack. PLEASE educate yourself before you open your mouth!

44 Cowellian April 2, 2014 at 12:57 PM

You’re wrong, Jesse. There was a gun found.

45 @#42; April 2, 2014 at 1:02 PM

Life is hard. It’s always going to be hard. I would have LOVED to have been a part of the fantasyland you’ve described. Better get used to it. It’s the only life you’ll get. If you get super lucky it’ll last a long time, and you’ll get to listen to people telling you how easy you had it and how you ruined it all for them.

46 Mister Wister April 2, 2014 at 2:17 PM

@5,
You’re a morons moron. Please take your ignorance to a place where somebody cares!

47 @Mister Wister April 2, 2014 at 2:49 PM

Please practice what you preach.

48 What security April 2, 2014 at 3:50 PM

who ever called the cops good job, Concord PD don’t take any S.
Glad I moved to Concord.

49 Mister Wister April 2, 2014 at 3:58 PM

@47
I’ll put my knowledge up against yours any day, simpleton!

50 Pro Fi April 2, 2014 at 6:26 PM

@42 – Well said. Unfortunately, it falls on deaf ears here. Thanks for a thought-provoking post.

51 City Girl April 2, 2014 at 9:11 PM

Please stop complaining about how you couldn’t go to college because it costs $13,000 a year for tuition. I had no money to pay for my children’s college tuition, but GUESS WHAT??? They went anyway. Both of my kids got financial aid in the form of grants and received enough to pay for all four years of college. Both had to work 15 hours/week to pay for some of their expenses but SO WHAT!! They were happy to have their own spending money, and they were proud to have earned it themselves. My daughter is now in grad school, and her brother is about to graduate from a CSU. Both got out of the CSU system with NO DEBT.

Don’t ever let money be the reason you do not go to college. There is plenty of money, loans, grants and scholarships out there. You just have to find it.

52 Cuzzzzz............... April 3, 2014 at 8:07 AM

#42 – perhaps is some of the people you speak of learned how to dress and act for job interviews they could actually get jobs. Cover that damn tats, wear real clothing (not PJ bottoms) sit up straight, put away the cell phone and speak proper English they might be able to get a decent job.
I have sat in interview panels and seen way too many that dress inappropriately (look like they rolled out of bed and grabbed something off the floor), with a gazillion tats and piecings, stop the interview to take a cell call, read text during the interview, slouch in the chair and answer with “you know” and “uh huh” and the first questions out of their mouths is “how much vacation do I get” and “when can I take vacation”. I doubt if Popeye’s Chicken would hire these people, let alone an entity that pays above minimum wage where career paths exist.
As for MediCare and SS…………..people pay into it. It comes out of their paychecks every pay day. Perhaps if you had a job you would know it. It is not an entitlement but a benefit workers have paid for. What needs to happen is cut the Welfare, Seciton 8, MediCal etc for all the lazy butt bottom feeders that refuse to get off the fat butts and get a freaking job or can’t get a job for the reasons above.

53 MaryJane April 6, 2014 at 4:23 PM

@37 Who do I blame for the economy? Myself? I bet you suggest that I just don’t blame anyone and suck it up. You’re absolutely right! However it’s hard to do that when you have older generations underestimating my generation, when were working with what you’ve left us!

@51 Thanks for telling me something that no senior in high school has ever heard. I had no idea that to start my life, I need to go into debt. Can I ask you something? Have you ever noticed that there are so many occupations out there? Yeah that’s because everyone has different skills. I do fine in college, but I personally couldn’t balance school and work.

@52 Your ignorance is astounding. I have been to my fair share of job interviews and I have never once seen someone act as you’ve described. However, I agree that too many people abuse government aid programs. You definitely sound like someone who failed to pursue any education beyond high school. That’s just my assumption though. I mean come on, I’m 18 and I sound more intelligent than you.
