Boy leads police on chase in truck

A 15-year-old East Toledo boy accused of driving a stolen pickup truck led police officers on a chase yesterday from Perrysburg to Sylvania Township.

The teen was booked into Wood County Juvenile Detention Center. Charges of delinquency in connection with receiving stolen property, fleeing and eluding police, and numerous traffic citations are pending, Perrysburg Officer Douglas Kinder said.

Area police and state troopers began to pursue a 1989 Ford truck that was reported stolen from East Toledo about 1:13 p.m. at Eckel Junction Road and North Dixie Highway.

The chase went north on I-475/U.S. 23 to Central Avenue, then east on Central to Holland-Sylvania Road, and north on Holland-Sylvania to Box Lane, where the truck struck a house.
