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.
