The two passengers who remained in the car, identified as two 17-year-old males, were also taken into custody.

The 16-year-old is charged with unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle, possession with intent to deliver a look-a-like substance, fleeing to elude, resisting, no valid driver’s license and disobeying a stop sign. He’s being held at the Juvenile Detention Center.

The 17-year-olds are charged with criminal trespass to a vehicle. Both were released to their parents.
