Geneva police have taken a 15-year-old boy into custody who at first was thought to be carrying a rifle, but it was later found to be a replica.
Police said Geneva units were called after someone saw the boy just before noon, wearing camouflage and carrying a rifle, along Route 31 near Stevens Street.
An officer saw the boy carrying what looked like an AK-47 rifle and took the teen into custody. Police then discovered it was an Airsoft Rifle.
Police said the boy, a resident of the St. Louis area, was visiting relatives. The teenager will be charged with disorderly conduct and referred to a juvenile officer for final disposition.
