CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A second teenager is accused of stealing body armor and other gear from an officer's pickup truck outside the law enforcer's suburban St. Louis home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that St. Louis County prosecutors have charged 18-year-old Patrick Dewayne Peete Jr. of St. Louis is charged with felony stealing. That's the same count 17-year-old Jared Johnson of Kirkwood was charged with earlier this month.

Authorities allege that the two teens and others last month stole a bullet-resistant vest with an attached flashlight and knife from the Brentwood police corporal's vehicle in Glendale. Also taken were two 30-round magazines for an assault-style rifle, as well as five shotgun rounds.

The stolen gear remains missing.

Online court records do not show whether Peete has an attorney.
