Teens arrested in Manchester stolen car incident
MANCHESTER -- Police arrested a pair of teens on the run from Mount Prospect Academy in Plymouth who were allegedly driving a stolen car in the city.
Officers spotted a stolen car being driven by the boys around 10:50 a.m. Sunday on Elm Street. The teens, 16 and a 14 years old, had been reported missing from the school this weekend.
Police say they tracked the car to Queen City Boulevard and Elm Street, where it was forced to stop because of traffic.
Both young men are being charged as juveniles with possession of a stolen vehicle, according to police.
Jeff Caron, executive director for Becket Family of Services, which runs the academy, said the pair is safe and back at the school.
Mount Prospect offers education for teens in need of therapy and rehabilitation services, Caron said.
