Police said evidence of rifle ammunition and burglary tools were recovered in the stolen vehicle.

The driver was transported to Juvenile Reception Center for criminal charges of Operating a Motor Vehicle without Owner's Consent, Knowingly Fleeing from an Officer and Resisting.

An investigation is ongoing and additional property damage and evidence is being processed as well.
