An exciting afternoon in Thousand Oaks, California ended in a car crash after four teenagers were caught trying to escape arrest for robbery. Two 16 year olds and two 15 year olds were arrested today after crashing in a parking lot near Hillcrest Drive and Marin Drive in Thousand Oaks. The four teens allegedly confronted two brothers on Thousand Oaks Boulevard and demanded the victims turn over their money and property. The brothers complied and the four teens left the area in a hurry. Police were called and a Ventura County Sheriff’s deputy located a suspect’s vehicle. A brief car chase led deputies to the arrest of four juveniles and the recovery of stolen property.
One of the suspects suffered minor injuries in the car crash and was treated and released at a local hospital. The minors will be held at the Oxnard Juvenile Hall until a court hearing to determine whether or not they will remain in custody pending the outcome of their case.
The four teens will likely be charged with robbery, evading arrest and possibly other charges.
