Just after 8:30 p.m. on June 23, police learned the 17-year-old had run away from the Lafourche Parish Juvenile Justice Facility. Sources said the teen was seen driving the stolen bus before crashing it into a pole and fleeing on foot.
On the morning of June 24, authorities were responding to a vehicle burglary when the suspect ran after realizing the victim had called the police. After a brief foot chase, they were apprehended and found to be the runaway juvenile from the previous day.
The teen is now in State custody on charges of theft of a motor vehicle, resisting an officer, and simple burglary of a motor vehicle.
