(KMOV.com) – A south St. Louis teen is accused of stealing a gun from a woman’s car and then posing with the gun in a Facebook photo.

Christian Eaton, 17, is charged with felony stealing. Eaton allegedly stole a pistol from an unlocked car in Affton before being pulled over by police.  A female friend who was with Eaton at the time told police Eaton tossed the gun from the car as an officer approached, but retrieved the weapon later.

Officers said they later found texts between Eaton and a friend in which Eaton bragged about stealing the gun, and police also found a Facebook photo of Eaton holding the gun.
