Two face charges after vehicle theft and chase

Police say two 16 year olds are now facing charges after stealing an unattended vehicle in Troy Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the suspects led them on a chase until they drove the stolen vehicle into a tree just off of 500 Federal Street and 4th street, near the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Troy.

Police say that the suspects suffered only minor injuries.

After the crash both suspects were arrested and are now charged with criminal possession of stolen property.

The area was closed only for a short period of time – police say for about 25-30 minutes – then promptly reopened.

 A court date has not yet been set.
