Two northern teens, 15 and 16, charged with car theft

OPP located the vehicle early Saturday morning parked on the shoulder of Highway 535

So much for graduated licensing.

The OPP have charged two teenagers — one 15, the other 16 — with stealing a motor vehicle from Sudbury on Friday night.

Police say the car was located early the next morning on the shoulder of Highway 535, south of Markstay-Warren.

The 15-year-old, who is from Hanmer, and the 16-year-old, a resident of St. Charles, were both charged with theft of a motor vehicle and possession of property over $5,000 obtained by crime.

The 15-year-old was also charged with two counts of failure to comply with an undertaking, pointing to a previous run-in with authorities.

The OPP did not release the names of the suspects because their identities are protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
