Bedford Teen Arrested After Stealing Vehicle

(BEDFORD) – A 17-year-old male juvenile was arrested Tuesday after Bedford Police officers were requested to a residence in the 1300 block of 25th Street after a report of a stolen vehicle. 

“Officers arrived and spoke with the victim who stated she believed her 17-year-old son took the vehicle without permission and requested to file charges,” said Chief Terry Moore. “A short time later the woman called back stating her son returned home with the vehicle and was trying to get into the house.”

When officers arrived they found the teen standing in the front yard.

“He was taken into custody and juvenile probation was contacted.  Lawrence County Juvenile Court requested the juvenile be brought in for a hearing in front of the juvenile Judge,” Chief Terry added. “The Judge determined to have the juvenile detained and transported to the Dickinson Juvenile detention Center.”
