Teens linked to car thefts from Lake City dealerships

Seattle police have arrested two teenage boys they say stole nearly a dozen cars from dealerships in Lake City.

Department spokesman Andrew Garber said that police were led to the teens after officers detained several boys “lurking” at a dealership on Oct. 12. One of the boys told investigators they had stolen nearly a dozen cars from nearby dealerships; the boy was arrested that day, Garber wrote.

On Oct. 19, officers arrested a second teenage boy for his alleged involvement in a burglary at a dealership on Lake City Way Northeast. Detectives later linked him to the theft of a $80,000 Chevrolet Camaro from a nearby dealership on Oct. 7.

Police say that the teen broke into the dealership, grabbed the keys and drove the Camaro Z28 off the showroom floor. The sports car was found, crashed, into a ditch a few blocks away.

That teen also told detectives about his involvement with thefts from nearby dealerships, Garber wrote.

Police say no other arrests have been made. Detectives are investigating.

The two teens who were arrested were released to their parents. Neither youth has been charged, police said.
