BRIGANTINE, NJ – A boy was charged two times for stealing two vehicles and crashing both of them, sources report.
Authorities were alerted of a vehicle that struck a pole on 14th Street South and West Brigantine Avenue at around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday. When police arrived to the scene and investigated the crash, they found the vehicle had been stolen from the owner’s driveway.
The boy was taken into custody, processed, and turned over to the parent.
A few days later on Sunday, the same boy was reported as a runaway when police found him driving another stolen vehicle at approximately 3:40 a.m.
An officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but the boy drove away and hit a parked car on East Brigantine Avenue. After that, the boy reached a dead end at the sea wall and police arrested him.
The boy did not know either owner of the vehicles. The vehicles were left unlocked.
Charges have been filed against the boy in juvenile court for both of the accidents.
