Chief Ronald A. Ricucci of the Takoma Park Police Department announces the arrest of a 16-year old male juvenile of Takoma Park, Maryland, for attempt theft from auto and rogue and vagabond.
On July 5, 2011, at approximately 2:48 p.m., Takoma Park Police observed a young subject with his shirt off running from Tulip Avenue on to Maple Avenue and into the bushes at the church. The subject then ran down Maple Avenue and, at that time, because of the officer’s training and experience, a look out was issued for the subject.

Takoma Park Police K-9 conducted a reverse track on the subject which led him from the subject to a 2004 Honda van, which was located at Tulip Avenue at Cedar Avenue with the front door to the vehicle open.
The juvenile was arrested and charged accordingly. He was transported to the Takoma Park Police Department and released to the custody of his mother.
