Teens Arrested For Vehicle Theft
07/17/2017

(KAIR)--A stolen vehicle is recovered and two teenagers are arrested in connection with the theft.

“At 8:30 Friday evening, an officer investigated the theft of a 2003 Jeep Liberty from the 1300 block of North Sixth,” said Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson. “About 30 minutes later, the officer spotted that stolen vehicle near Sixth and Kansas Avenue.”

He said a 17-year-old male was taken into custody and the jeep recovered. Additionally, there was a 16-year-old passenger who fled from officers.

“He was apprehended a short time later in the downtown area,” Wilson said.

The teens were charged with theft of a motor vehicle and criminal damage to property.

“They manipulated the steering column to be able to steal the car,” Wilson said. “It was in a driveway in front of the residence, they apparently did not know the victim. They chose that vehicle because apparently they had an interest in this Jeep Liberty.”

Both teens were released to juvenile intake.
