Teens Face Multiple Charges After Pursuit in Plymouth County

Three teens face several charges after a vehicle and foot pursuit Monday in Plymouth County.  Before the pursuit began, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office says they were asked by the sheriff’s office in Buena Vista County to be on the lookout for a stolen vehicle.

A Plymouth County Deputy found the vehicle about noon just east of Hinton on C60.  The Deputy and Hinton Police attempted to pull the vehicle over at the city limits of Hinton; the vehicle initially stopped but ended up fleeing.

Authorities say a pursuit that ended when the vehicle entered a cul-de-sac in Hinton. According to the sheriff’s office, all three people in the vehicle then fled on foot.  Two of the three were caught after a short foot chase, while the third was located after a 30-minute search.

All three have been identified as teenage boys, two of them are 14 years old and the third is 15 years old. All three are charged with Possession of stolen property in excess of $10,000, Possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, Failure to affix a drug tax stamp, and Interference with official acts.

The alleged driver of the vehicle is facing an additional charge of eluding with speeds 25 mph over the posted limit.

None of the teens have been identified by authorities. The three were sent to the Youth Emergency Services Center in Cherokee, Iowa after they were processed by the sheriff’s office.
