Three teens arrested after deputies stop stolen car in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG — Three teenagers were arrested Wednesday after they were seen riding in a stolen car, Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies said.

Jarried J. Simpson, 16, was driving the 2009 Nissan Maxima, deputies said. He faces charges of grand theft auto, hit and run, aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer and aggravated fleeing and eluding. He was also arrested on an unrelated warrant charging a violation of a conditional release for carjacking.

Deputies also arrested a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old who face charges of trespass in a conveyance and resisting arrest without violence. Both charges are misdemeanors.

The three were taken to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center.

The St. Petersburg police asked deputies to watch for two stolen vehicles, a 2010 Dodge Charger and the Nissan. Deputies spotted the Nissan in the area of Osprey Point Apartment complex, 54th Ter. S and 22nd Way.

Deputies said that before they could try to stop the car, it rammed a St. Petersburg police cruiser, knocking off the front bumper. The car fled north to 54th Avenue S and sideswiped another vehicle as it turned east onto 54th Avenue.

Deputies stopped the Nissan at 40th Avenue S and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street. Simpson and the two passengers fled on foot toward Lake Maggiore Park. A K-9 unit tracked and caught them. Deputies later found the stolen Dodge at the Osprey Point Apartments.

The investigation is continuing.
