FALMOUTH — According to a statement by State Police, Trooper Kristopher Kennedy stopped a 17-year-old Minot boy last week, after clocking him driving at 106 mph on the Maine Turnpike in Falmouth.

A search of the car found two semi-automatic handguns and ammunition under the driver’s seat, along with a 12-inch knife, two police style batons, marijuana pipes and three packs of cigarettes.

The teenager told Kennedy he had taken the weapons from his father’s house without permission.

His two 16-year-old passengers claimed no knowledge of them.

The parents of the three boys were contacted and the teen driver faces charges, including criminal speeding, carrying a concealed weapon, and possessing drug paraphernalia and tobacco.
