KCSO Arrests Five Juveniles After Pursuit

April 11th, 2023 10:28 am

GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich: Monday night just after 9:00 PM, deputies spotted a stolen Kia sedan in the area of 60th St SE & Kalamazoo Ave. The vehicle fled from officers and due to traffic conditions at the time the pursuit was ended. Around 1:15 AM this morning, another deputy spotted the vehicle traveling along Woodfield Dr SE (Eastern & 60th). The vehicle again fled, however, due to traffic conditions at the time, the pursuit continued west along 60th St. The vehicle ran over spike strips and turned south on Division Ave.

The vehicle continued to flee along Division and drove behind and around a business. Eventually, the vehicle stopped on Regal Ave, and five teenagers were taken into custody. In the car were two 15-year-old males, two 17-year-old males, and one 16-year-old female all from the Grand Rapids area. The Kia was recently stolen out of Jenison.

This pursuit is an example of what deputies encounter on a regular basis. The KCSO has continued to report a significant uptick in stolen cars over the past few years. Dangerous driving, stolen vehicles used in additional crimes, and the young age of the individuals involved are common factors.

This incident remains open and will be reviewed by the prosecutor's office.
