REDDING, Calif.-

Two kids are behind bars for stealing cigarettes the Circle K at 2245 Hartnell Avenue in Redding.

Redding Police officers say that on Thursday at around 12:00 a.m. two boys entered the store wearing hooded sweatshirts. One of them pretended to have a firearm and they demanded cigarettes from the store employee. 

The employee complied, giving them several packs. The boys then ran away in an unknown direction. 

During the investigation, officers say they learned that the boys were responsible for the robbery and that they lived at a local group home. 

Both were previously on probation, one for robbery, the other for assault. 

Officers went to the group home and arrested both juveniles for robbery and conspiracy. They were booked into the Shasta County Juvenile Hall.
