An early morning traffic stop Oct. 7 escalated into a pursuit and eventually resulted in charges being filed against two boys.
According to Dublin Police Department reports, an officer attempted stop on a gray Honda Accord at 3:20 a.m. Oct. 7 off Interstate 270 and Sawmill Road.
The vehicle then sped away with Dublin police beginning to pursue before officers stopped because the traffic stop didn't fall within the department's pursuit policy.
Police found the vehicle in which the boys fled unoccupied and parked in a driveway in the 6300 block of Oisin Court.
The Westerville Police Department later verified the vehicle had been stolen from that community and the vehicle was given back to the owner, who said she wished to pursue criminal charges.
Officers then began searching for the youths on foot.
Canine units from the Hilliard Police Department and Delaware County Sheriff's Department helped Dublin police try to find the vehicle's occupants.
An officer found the two juvenile boys, in the 7000 block of Post Preserve Boulevard.
Reports said officers found the two boys in possession of $20 in jewelry and $61.58 in cash as well as credit cards and other property, with a total value of $86.58.
Police investigated the boys' alleged theft of the vehicle and property from people in the Westerville area, but didn't find enough evidence to charge the boys with a crime at the time according to reports.
Officers did, however, later charge one boy with receiving stolen property and the other with receiving stolen property and obstructing official business.
