Police discovered a teen who had been missing for more than a year and 50 pounds of marijuana following a report of shots fired near a playground.

On Friday, Sept. 25, Sudbury Police responded around 2:30 p.m. to a report of someone possibly firing a handgun in an apartment parking lot complex on Boston Post Road.

When police arrived they allegedly found a bunch of people in a vehicle taking turns to fire a replica gun, police said.

In plain sight, officers allegedly saw a large amount of marijuana in the car, police said, as well as scales, money, and boxes of THC edibles.

“Not only did this incident result in the seizure of a large quantity of marijuana and edibles, but also this occurred within a few yeards of a playground and bus stop,” Police Chief Scott Nix. “These edibles were packed with the identical names of household snack brands and would be indistinguishable to children.

When questioned, one of the people gave police multiple false names, police said. It was eventually determined that the suspect was a previously reported missing child.

Police did not identify the juvenile or say from where he was reported missing.

Police executed a search warrant at one of the men’s apartments and allegedly found more drugs there.

Police estimate that the street value of the marijuana is about $250,000.

Miguel Teo, 23, of Denver, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of THC with the intent to distribute, and malicious destruction of property, police said.

The found missing juvenile and the man who resided in the searched apartment were not charged but could be at a later time. Police said they are in the midst of an active investigation.
