Two teens are in custody after an early Monday chase in Ottawa County.
Police say the incident began around 2 a.m. in the area of Chicago Drive and 56th Avenue when a deputy with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop a blue Honda Accord for several violations. The driver refused to stop, and instead fled from the deputy westbound. The driver crashed into a grassy area after driving through a red light.
Police say once the vehicle crashed, both occupants fled on foot. One of the teens, a 15-year-old boy from Evart, was apprehended in the immediate area. He was taken to the Ottawa County Juvenile Detention Facility on a variety of charges.
The other occupant, a 16-year-old boy from Evart, was found a short time after.
Preliminary investigation indicates the car had been stolen from a home in the Jenison area. Police say it was also discovered that the teens had recently fled from the juvenile detention facility in Evart.
The incident remains under investigation.
