Kodiak 15-year-old charged after stealing SUV

KODIAK — Alaska State Troopers say three Kodiak juvenile males face charges after joyriding in a stolen sport-utility vehicle before one of them crashed it.

Troopers in a web posting say a 15-year-old boy stole a friend’s SUV early Christmas morning. He picked up two other boys, ages 16 and 17, and drove around for a few hours.

After he dropped them off, troopers say the 15-year-old boy was driving while texting and crashed the SUV into a ditch. The vehicle was totaled but he wasn’t injured.

Troopers say he didn’t report the accident, and warned a witness not to call the police.

He has been charged with vehicle theft, not immediately reporting the accident, driving while texting and driving without a license. The other two boys were charged with criminal mischief.
