12-year-old boy steals family van, leads officers on wild, high-speed chase

A 12-year-old California boy has been arrested on suspicion of stealing his family’s van and then leading deputies on a high-speed chase, according to authorities. 

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy was patrolling the Riverdale area Monday morning when he saw a large cloud of dust.

As the deputy approached the scene, a resident told him that a mini-van struck an advertisement sign and drove away.

The deputy was able to catch up with the van and tried to get the driver to make a traffic stop, but the driver sped away topping speeds of over 70 mph, running into stop signs, and driving on the opposite side of the road.
