Two Wyoming teens accused of threatening to shoot up a preschool are on the run in a stolen $100,000 Chevy Chevelle.
Otis Edlund and Quintin Wyrick, both 16, are believed to be traveling more than 1,400 miles from Lander, WY to League City near Houston, TX while armed.
Amarillo Police Department in northern Texas on the route released mugshots of the pair and warned they had been 'made aware of a threat to preschools'.
They are accused of stealing guns and a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle with a back top, a black stripe down the side and Wyoming license plates on Thursday, cops said.
A woman who identified herself as Edlund's aunt on Facebook suggested the car was a family vehicle.
'This vehicle is extremely difficult to drive on (in) these road conditions,' she wrote to a community group, according to Cowboy State Daily.
'They will need to fuel up A LOT! Please, please keep an eye out on the road, in ditches, gas stations. The families are worried sick,' she said.
Amarillo PD released photographs of Edlund, a 5-foot-10 white teen with long brown hair, and Wyrick, a 6-foot-2 white teen with short brown hair.
'This particular threat does not mention any particular daycare in the Amarillo area, or in any other city, only citing Texas,' the department said.
'However, we understand that this information can cause concern and we want to assure the community that we are taking all necessary precautions.'
'We are utilizing the information from Wyoming to track the subjects and have found that currently there's no direct threat in our city.
'We will continue to monitor the situation and update with new information.'Read more 2024-02-12T14:52:55Z dg43tfdfdgfd
