  • Print

Five teenagers wound up on the naughty list on Christmas Eve after stealing a vehicle and being taken into custody by police that night.

On Dec. 24, a Chevrolet Cavalier was stolen from the 700 block of Alfred Ave.

Around 10:50 p.m., police spotted the vehicle travelling northbound on Andrews St. near Flora Ave. Several patrollers tried to stop the car near McGregor Street and Royal Crescent. The driver rear-ended a police cruiser on Royal Crescent, hit another parked car and continued trying to evade the police.

A 17-year-old female, two 14-year-old females, a 14-year-old male and a 13-year-old female are facing a variety of charges, including theft of a motor vehicle, flight while being pursued by a peace officer, driving without a license and possession of property obtained by crime.

Four of the teenagers were released on promises to appear, while the 17 year-old female remains in custody.
