ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - St. Cloud police arrested a 15-year-old boy after the teen was spotted inside a stolen vehicle, according to officers.

The vehicle was located by officers on a routine patrol parked on the 2500 block of 3rd Street North around 7:20 p.m. Thursday, St. Cloud police Sgt Michael Koeniguer said.

After determining the vehicle was reported stolen, the officers tried to talk with the boy inside the car, but the teen fled on foot.

Those officers were able to chase down the boy and take him into custody, Koeniguer said.

The teen was taken to the Stearns County Juvenile Detention Facility on charges of receiving stolen property and fleeing officers on foot.

The boy, whose name was not released because of his age, was also treated for minor injuries suffered during the chase.
