Truck stolen by teen found at Texas robbery scene

BETHEL ACRES, Okla. — A central Oklahoma undersheriff says the pickup truck a teen stole from his parents' home along with guns and ammunition has been found at a deadly robbery scene in Texas.

Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer says two people are dead after a failed robbery at a rural Texas home, but he didn't know the victims' identities.

The red Ford Ranger that 17-year-old Kenneth Chaffin of Bethel Acres, Okla., took Monday was found Wednesday at the home in Ellis County in North Texas. Sheriff's investigators there did not immediately return a call for comment.

Oklahoma authorities had alerted national law enforcement to be on the lookout for Chaffin. They said he left his parents' home with the truck, 17 guns, 2,000 rounds of ammunition and prescription drugs.
