Two 13-Year-Olds Arrested in Stolen Car
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Midtown Hills Precinct undercover detectives this afternoon arrested two 13-year-olds after they were covertly followed while riding in a 2015 Hyundai Sonata that was reported stolen earlier in the day from Whispering Hills Drive.
The undercover team followed the car to Heron Pointe Apartments, where the 13-year-old driver piggybacked closely behind an unsuspecting resident who had just entered the security gate code. When the teen suspiciously backed the car into a space at the apartment complex, officers attempted to block the car. The 13-year-old then put it into gear and crashed into a neighboring unoccupied vehicle before he and his passenger were taken into custody.
Both teens are being charged with auto theft.
