Two teenagers were arrested Oct. 30 after Grandview Heights police officers reported observing them attempting to break into a vehicle.
Reports said officers observed the two Columbus residents -- one 18 years old, the other 13 -- attempting to break into a car parked in the 900 block of Oxley Road about 2:08 a.m. Oct. 30.
When officers tried to make contact with the suspects, they fled on foot, according to reports. Officers gave chase and caught up to them at Grandview and Inglis avenues.
The juvenile was found to be in possession of several pills, police reports said. He was charged with a felony count of possession of drugs and obstructing official business.
The adult was charged with misdemeanor counts of contributing to the unruliness/delinquency of a child and criminal mischief.
Officers recovered a GPS unit and four bicycles, all of which Grandview residents had listed as stolen in reports they filed later Oct. 30, reports said.
Two of the bikes and the GPS unit were found where the teens were first observed by officers; the other two bikes were found nearby on Burr Avenue, according to police.
The GPS unit was stolen from a car parked at a residence in the 900 block of Quay Avenue. The victim told police she had last seen the device the previous night, mounted on the vehicle's windshield.
A resident of the 800 block of Palmer Road reported the four bicycles were stolen from in front of his home. They were last seen around 10 p.m. Oct. 29, reports said.
The suspects each were charged with misdemeanor counts of receiving stolen property.
After their arrest, the juvenile was released to his mother; the adult was taken to the Franklin County jail.
