Five boys arrested during early-morning joyride

Sandusky Register Staff • Dec 3, 2013 at 4:40 PM

A 13-year-old Wayne Street boy was charged with no driver’s license, no headlights and a curfew violation. The others — 10- and 12-year-old West Parish Street boys, a 16-year-old East Larchmont Drive boy and a 15-year-old Virginia boy — were charged with curfew violation.

A Sandusky officer was cruising south on Columbus Avenue Sunday morning when he passed a Honda Odyssey driven by a boy who could barely see over the steering wheel, according to a police report.

The officer promptly stopped the vehicle, and the driver said he was 18 years old. After a moment, however, he admitted he was actually 13 years old, the report said.

The boy said he’d taken his aunt’s vehicle without her permission because “he and his friends just wanted to go for a drive” the report said.

The boy’s aunt declined filing additional charges, the report said.
