SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Four teenagers are being charged in connection with a stolen Springfield police cruiser.
According to Springfield Police Department Spokesperson Ryan Walsh, at around 7:20 p.m. on Friday officers were called to a report of a property damage crash at the intersection of Bowdoin and Lincoln streets involving a police cruiser. Four suspects ran away from the cruiser, which was stolen from the police headquarters on Pearl Street.
“There’s ‘No Trespassing’ signs, but it is accessible through different stairwells in the front parking lot and however else, but we are reviewing the cameras and video over that time period to see what is going on,” said Walsh.
The next day, on Saturday at around 7:20 p.m. officers arrested four teens, ages 14 to 16, in the area of Hampden Street attempting to break into vehicles. A key to a cruiser was recovered from one of the teens.
The names and charges will not be released due to their ages.
