Teenagers Arrested for Stealing Cars
(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – Two teenage boys have been arrested for car theft, a teenage adult is hospitalized after the group led police on a chase around the Summit Park subdivision. Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies tried to pull over a blue car early Wednesday morning for not having tail lights. The car failed to stop on First Street near Hitt Road and sped away from officers. A short time later, a second deputy noticed the three pulling into the subdivision near Ammon and Iona roads. A perimeter was set up on the exits to the neighborhood, and a search for the vehicle and the teens began. They found the car abandoned. A couple of minutes later, the same three had stolen a Chevy Pickup Truck. As they were trying to elude officers coming out of the neighborhood near Bonneville High School, they drove off the roadway, over-corrected and rolled the vehicle. Two juvenile teens ages 14 and 16 were taken to 3B detention center for vehicle theft. An 18-year old was taken to EIRMC for medical treatment.
