VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -
An Evansville juvenile has been charged with various crimes after he led deputies on a chase in a stolen vehicle.
Around 3:50 a.m. Sunday morning, a deputy was on patrol traveling south on north St. Joseph Avenue when he observed a 2006 black Dodge Charger traveling northbound. That deputy knew this to be a vehicle which matched the description of a vehicle stolen from a north side business on Saturday evening.
At that time, deputies also knew the vehicle was stolen by a 14-year-old, white male juvenile.
The deputy followed the vehicle through the Darmstadt area and confirmed that the vehicle was the stolen vehicle. Authorities say they tried to stop the vehicle in front of the 4-H Center.
Instead of stopping, it started fleeing recklessly at a high rate of speed down Highway 41 North.
Deputies say they deployed stop sticks at the intersection of Highway 41 North and State Road 57. The suspect vehicle struck them, deflating the tires and continued to drive at a high rate of speed, on shredded tires, through a north side neighborhood.
Authorities say the suspect vehicle then traveled down a dead end street, and started to drive through residential backyards until it finally came to a stop.
Deputies say he and another 14-year-old juvenile passenger started running north through the woods.
The deputy and his K9 partner were able to track the suspects. The juvenile passenger was captured a short time later without incident and was placed in temporary custody. They continued to track the suspect driver north through the woods to a north side house.
Deputies say they spoke with the homeowners who stated the suspect had called the house, but he wasn't there. The homeowners did direct deputies to a residence where they knew the suspect went to.
When deputies arrived at that residence where they believed the suspect to be, they spoke with the homeowners who cooperated and stated the suspect was inside. Deputies say they located the juvenile suspect hiding in a closest. He was taken into custody without incident.
After deputies contacted the juvenile suspect's parents, he was transported to the Youth Correctional Center in Evansville. The juvenile passenger was released to his parents.
The juvenile suspect was charged with the following crimes:
Auto Theft – Class D felony Resisting Law Enforcement – Class D felony Criminal Recklessness – Class A misdemeanor Reckless Driving – Class A misdemeanor
