Three teens to face charges after allegedly stealing cars, breaching security at 128th Air Refueling Wing

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Three teens are facing charges after allegedly stealing cars and breaching security at the 128th Air Refueling Wing.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office responded yesterday to an incident at the 128th Air Refueling Wing, based adjacent to General Mitchell International Airport.

The military base security personnel had pursued a vehicle after it breached the security gate, where they then stopped the vehicle on the grounds. Sheriff’s deputies have three subjects in custody, a 14-year-old male and two 17-year-old males.

The three were involved in stealing a vehicle in Milwaukee, and then another in St. Francis.

Preliminary felony charges for one of the 17-year-olds and the 14-year-old subject include 2nd Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Fleeing, Take and Drive Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent, and Criminal Damage to Property. 

The other 17-year-old also faces the above charges as Party to a Crime, with the exception of Fleeing.

All three potentially face additional charges once the investigation is complete.

No other details will be released at this time.
