WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Two teens are out of custody after being accused of stealing of a scooter and running from police.
Wilmington Police say an officer saw the boys on a scooter at Wrightsville Country Store on Wrightsville Avenue. Neither boy was wearing a helmet, but both had their faces covered with bandanas. When they saw the police cruiser turn around, police say the boys took off on the scooter and cut through the Creek Apartments.
Officers found the two 14-year-old boys in Vista Village at 1912 Gufford Dr. They also found the stolen scooter with the motor still warm, along with bolt cutters and a screwdriver.
Both juveniles were released to their parents. Officers are following up with the Office of Juvenile Justice for any possible charges.
