The youth was instructed to contact the Oswego County Probation Department on 10/28/09 for further processing. The charges were the result of a vehicle pursuit that began when he allegedly ignored lights and sirens in an attempt to have him stop while operating a vehicle on Rathburn Road in the Town of Granby. Before he was observed driving, he had initially been observed sitting behind the wheel of the vehicle as it was parked with lights off in the parking lot at the Citgo Gas Station near Junior Avenue. The youth was reported to be driving at high rates of speed, allegedly not slowing or stopping for the intersections at CR 85, Furniss Station Road, or CR 20. He was finally halted when he failed to negotiate a left hand turn under the train trestle bridge as it narrowed to one lane in the Town of Oswego where he struck several trees straight ahead of him. The vehicle he was driving was reportedly taken without permission from his residence and the youth was found to be in possession of marijuana.
