Six individuals, four of them minors, were reportedly involved in the theft of merchandise and vehicles in Huntingdon.
According to state police at Huntingdon, troopers observed a dark-colored sedan traveling the wrong way down Mifflin Street early Sunday morning. When troopers activated their emergency lights, the car made a left turn onto 9th Street at a high rate of speed.
The car continued to travel down streets and through a parking lot before being boxed in along Church Street, police said. The driver was identified as a 14-year-old male traveling with three other males aged 13, 11 and 3.
The investigation showed the car had been stolen a few hours earlier, police said. A search of the car yielded $700 in stolen merchandise from Wal-Mart.
The owner of the car told troopers that a second car was missing, police said, which was located in the borough with three more suspects — two aged 18 and one 17-year-old. About $200 in stolen Wal-Mart merchandise was located inside the second vehicle.
Charges against the youths are pending, police said. All names were withheld.
