EUCLID, Ohio — There are new developments in the case of the teenagers who evaded police and hid at the headquarters of Lubrizol in Wickliffe earlier this week.
The Euclid Police Department has released videos of the search that involved three law enforcement agencies, a drone and a K9 unit.
The body camera footage shows the incident, which began at around 12:20 a.m. on Tuesday, as Euclid police were following a vehicle on Lakeland Blvd. near Lloyd Road. The occupants of the car had reportedly been stealing items from other vehicles in Euclid.
Video shows two suspects taking off on foot, then caught by officers.
The others in the car drove off, eventually ending up in front of the Lubrizol property in Wickliffe, where they ditched the car and ran inside.
"The car rolled across the street here. I don’t believe there is anyone in it, they are on Lubrizol property," officers can be heard stating.
Inside the facility, police found the other two teens hiding under a desk with help from Eastlake's K9.
Both teens were arrested. One of them was worried about their possessions as the chase finally came to an end.
"Can you get my phone from underneath the table," the teen asked police. "Nope. Keep walking," was the reply from officers.
According to police, all four juveniles involved were just 15-years-old. They are facing a number of charges in Lake County Juvenile Court, including burglary, criminal trespassing, and curfew violation.
Police also say they discovered an airsoft pistol nearly identical to a real firearm on the ground where the two teens jumped the fence.
More charges are expected to be handed down from the Euclid Police Department as well.
