COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Two armed Ohio teenagers who authorities suspect engaged in a crime spree spanning state borders has been apprehended.
The sheriff’s office in Wyandot County, Ohio, says it got word around noon on Saturday that a 16-year-old male from Upper Sandusky and a 15-year-old female from Sycamore, Ohio, were in the custody of West Virginia State Police after a police pursuit. Authorities said the two, who had a gun, crashed a vehicle stolen in Pennsylvania and fled on foot for a distance before they were caught.
The Wyandot County sheriff said West Virginia and Pennsylvania state police are jointly investigating a series of crimes they believe is connected to the juveniles.
Their parents have been notified and are traveling to New Martinsville, West Virginia, to meet with investigators.
