Teen, 15, accused of leading police on chase, crashing into cemetery

DELHI, OH (FOX19) - Police say a 15-year-old boy is in custody after he stole a car, led police on a chase, then crashed into a cemetery.

Officers say the teen stole an acquaintance's car around 4 a.m. Monday morning. Officers spotted the car around 5:30 a.m. at Fehr and Pedretti and briefly pursued the car, but turned off their lights when they noticed the driver was reckless.

A short time later, an officer spotted the car crashed into St. Joseph Cemetery. The driver ran away, so K-9 units were called, and the teen was found and arrested a short time later.

Police say alcohol was a factor in this incident.
