Syracuse police arrest teen driving stolen car after chase

A 15-year-old boy was arrested on Saturday when he lost control of a stolen car after a chase with Syracuse police, SPD Sgt. Gary Bulinski said.

The teenager, whose name is not being released because of his age, has been charged with two felonies: second-degree burglary and third-degree criminal possession of stolen property. He's also charged with misdemeanor third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Here's wha Bulinski said happened:

Officer Leonard Brown saw a stolen 2006 Toyota Avalon being driven on Route 690 East near Teall Avenue at about 4 p.m. Brown turned on his lights, but the the driver kept going and became "reckless."

The driver eventually lost control of the car at the intersection of Jamesville and Randall roads in DeWitt and crashed into a parked car. The driver tried to run away, but was quickly arrested. No one was hurt in the chase.

The key from the car were taken during a burglary that happened on the 300 block of Salt Springs Road. The burglary was reported at about noon on Saturday.

After an investigation, the teenager was charged.

The teenager is from Syracuse and is being held in the Hillbrook Detention Facility. He will be arraigned in Family Court at a later date.
