NEW HAVEN— The arrest of three juveniles suspected of committing two weekend robberies led to the arrest of a fourth who was manufacturing and selling homemade firearms, police said.

The robberies happened over the weekend in the East Rock area, according to police. When the suspects were apprehended, one of them was in possession of a homemade “zip-gun,” police said.

Detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for a residence on Mountain Ridge Road using the information provided by the three juveniles. Inside, officers found another assembled gun, a partially assembled gun and other gun components, police said.

A juvenile living in the residence was arrested and later told police that he had made and sold as many as 12 “zip-guns,” police said.
