GLENDALE — Police arrested a 15-year-old La Crescenta boy who took his grandmother's SUV on a Halloween joyride, crashing into four parked cars and fleeing on foot, police said.
Glendale police on Monday tracked down the teen, whose name was withheld because he's a minor, after his grandmother told officers she didn't know who took her Mercedes SUV on Oct. 31, Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The Mercedes was left at the crash scene and traced back to her, he said.
The teen allegedly took his grandmother's car without permission that night, visited a friend and went for joyride, Lorenz said.
The teen allegedly sped through a stop sign in the 4800 block of Maryland Avenue that night and lost control of the Mercedes, which crashed into four parked cars.
