Teens facing charges after crashing stolen van

HOMER, Mich. (WOOD) — Five teenagers are facing charges after stealing a van and then crashing it into a garage early Friday morning.

The five suspects fled before deputies arrived at the scene of the crash in the 300 block of Terrace Drive in the village of Homer.

After searching the area, deputies located two females and one male who were walking near the crash area.

They admitted to police that they were involved in the crash and said there were two other males involved.

While authorities were searching for the other two male suspects, they discovered that the vehicle involved had been stolen from a home on S. Byron Street in Homer late Thursday night.

A K9 unit was brought in to help track down the remaining two suspects who were eventually located at a home on S. Byron Street, not far from where the van had been stolen.

The suspects range in ages between 14 to 17 years old.

Two of the juvenile male suspects had warrants out for their arrest out of Jackson County and were taken into custody.

The two females and the 17-year-old male were released pending further investigation.

The incident remains under investigation and charges will be filed in the near future, according to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office.
