Pasco deputy arrests teens on the run in stolen car

CRYSTAL SPRINGS — The teens were asleep in their prize when the deputy pulled up.

About 7 a.m. on Wednesday, the deputy found the boys, ages 15 and 17, on Sutorus Road, sleeping inside a car they stole, according to a news release Thursday from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. They were wanted on charges of grand theft auto and robbery.

But when the deputy tried to arrest them, they woke up and got away.

Their luck ran out Thursday, though. Both were arrested about 2 p.m. after a detective found them back on Sutorus Road.

When the detective approached, they tried to run again. The details aren't clear, but according to the release, the teens hit him with the car — he received minor injuries — he shot at the car with his gun, stopping the car. Then he arrested them both.

The teens were not injured. Their names are being withheld because of their ages.

  3. 'Baby Driver' literally turns heist movie genre on its ear, set to slick soundtrack

    Movies

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
