SOUTH GLENDALE — Police detained a teenager for questioning Tuesday morning after searching for more than two hours for suspects who allegedly stole a car idling on a driveway.
Detectives were interviewing the teen, whose name wasn’t released, about the vehicle theft on the 600 block of Raleigh Street, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. They were still searching for a suspect who witnesses described only as a Latino man, he added.
The theft occurred just after 8 a.m., when a woman left her idling car with the keys in the ignition and parked in a driveway, he said.
She immediately notified police as she saw the men drive off in her car.
A motorcycle officer managed to get the suspects to pull over after they made several attempts to outmaneuver him, Lorenz said.
The suspects ran from the car into the south Glendale neighborhood of Los Feliz Road and Brand Boulevard, where police set up a perimeter to find them.
