Two juveniles arrested following chase and crash in Mequon Friday night

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- On Friday, April 16, at approximately 9:45pm CT., the Bayside police department apprehended two juveniles following a car chase and crash in Mequon.

Authorities say the incident initiated a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle after initially observing it speeding on N. Port Washington Road, just south of W. County Line Rd. 

The vehicle fled the traffic stop and was pursued northbound on N. Port Washington Rd. in the City of Mequon until it crashed at the intersection of N. Port Washington Rd. and W. Mequon Rd. 

Two juvenile occupants were taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit. 

After being medically cleared, they were booked at the Village of Bayside Police Department on charges of being a passenger in a stolen vehicle and resisting/obstructing an officer.

One of the juveniles was reported missing and also had a warrant for vehicle theft. The other juvenile had a warrant for retail theft. 

Charges for the two juveniles will be forwarded to the Ozaukee County District Attorney's Office next week. 

Using a K9 and drone, the suspected driver was unfortunately unable to be located after fleeing on foot from the vehicle.

 Assisting agencies were: Mequon Police Department, Thiensville Police Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, River Hills Police Department, Saukville Police Department and the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office.
