Five teenage boys from Columbus were arrested after allegedly sneaking into a Westerville graduation party and fleeing in a stolen car.
According to reports, the boys were spotted at a party in the first block of Juniper Avenue, eating the food and taking items.
When no one at the party could identify the boys, the homeowner confronted them and told them he was calling police.
As police were arriving, three of the boys got into a vehicle outside the house and attempted to drive away, reports stated. Two others fled on foot.
When the car pulled out, it reportedly hit three parked vehicles, eventually becoming immobile, according to reports. While the driver continued to try to pull away, officers reportedly drew their guns and arrested the three boys in the car.
One of the boys who had run away from the house was discovered with the assistance of a Columbus helicopter, reports stated.
The other was not found.
Police ran the license plate of the vehicle and determined it had been reported stolen out of Cincinnati. Officers also reportedly found a small amount of suspected marijuana as well as drug paraphernalia, according to reports.
The 15-year-old driver was charged with receiving stolen property, failure to comply, theft, criminal trespassing and possession of a controlled substance and was issued a citation for a variety of offenses, reports stated.
He was taken to the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center.
The other three boys, ages 13, 14 and 16, were charged with theft and criminal trespassing and released to their parents, according to reports.
