Officers began to se­arch the area and lo­cated a 17-year-old Dartmouth youth who was attempting to le­ave the area on foot.  Officers recogniz­ed him as the driver and arrested him in the area of Woodland Avenue.  The youth is currently in cus­tody and is being he­ld for court in the morning to answer to charges of theft of motor vehicle, poss­ession of stolen pro­perty over $5000.00, flee police, resist police, dangerous operation of motor ve­hicle and property damage.


No injuries were rep­orted from the occup­ants of the home or the arrested youth.
