A 15-year-old Richmond boy has been taken into custody on Thursday morning after a lengthy chase that started after vehicles were broken into and a car was stolen in the Carmel Church area of Caroline County, in Virginia, officials said.
Caroline Sheriff Tony Lippa said the incident took place in the Belmont neighborhood early Thursday when deputies responding to reports of suspicious activity encountered a juvenile in the stolen car and tried to stop him.
The juvenile led police on a chase that went into Hanover County, the town of Ashland and Henrico County before colliding the stolen vehicle on Interstate 64 in the area of Staples Mills Road.
The incident was still being investigated as of Thursday and Lippa said charges are pending against the boy, who was not named as he is a juvenile.
Anyone with further details related to this incident is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 804/633-5400 and ask to talk with Investigator Cardoso. Anonymous calls can be made at 804/633-1133.
