Walker County, Alabama (WIAT) — The 14-year-old boy escaped from the juvenile training school, led a law enforcement agency in a car chase, and was detained again on Wednesday night.
The Walker County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) said a teenager had stolen a car and escaped from George J. Mitnick Boys’ Camp.
According to police, WCSO Captain Ralph Williams observed the boy driving a stolen car on highway 118 in the Oakman area.
“The boy led Captain Williams to chase the car and entered Fayette County for a few miles,” police wrote in a social media post.
Law enforcement agencies in Fayette County eventually used spike strips to stop the boy and “flatten all four tires of the vehicle.”
According to the post, George J. Mitnick Juvenile Camp is “a boot camp wilderness program designed to distract boys aged 12 to 17 who have delinquent crimes from working at the Alabama Youth Services Department.”
