The investigation into the report of a stolen car and missing juveniles from the Hillside Children’s Center campus in Varick on Halloween night has led to the arrests of a 12 year old and a 13 year old.
Deputies report the juveniles were able to get a key to the car and were able to leave the area shortly before 11 p.m. The car was believed to have been spotted on Route 5 in the Border City area, but deputies were unable to locate it. The car was then located on the Thruway near Exit 29 some 140 miles away around 2:30 the following morning after the juveniles allegedly crashed it. The kids were treated at St. Mary’s Hospital in Canajoharie and released.
They were brought back to Seneca County and issued appearance tickets for Family Court.
