Teens in stolen truck lead JPSO deputies on chase into New Orleans

JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Deputies arrest two teens following a police chase in a stolen truck that started in Terrytown and ended in New Orleans. The incident occurred Sunday around 4:40 p.m.

According to police, deputies received an alert stating that a stolen vehicle was near the intersection of Behrman Highway and Holmes Boulevard. A pair of deputies who were nearby at the Oakwood Mall spotted the stolen truck. A deputy driving an unmarked police car attempted to stop the truck by blocking the Terry Parkway on ramp heading towards the Crescent City Connection. Officer Whaland Shepherd parked the unit on the ramp, got out of the vehicle and started to walk towards the truck.

The driver of the truck then tried to back up but hit a car behind him. He then went forward and hit Shepherds unit before backing up again, striking the same car behind him. The impact from the second collision caused a chain reaction on the on ramp. The driver then sped forward towards Shepherd, who fired five shots at the truck, hitting the vehicle three times. The shots missed both the driver and passenger.
The truck was able to squeeze between Shepherds unit and the concrete barrier.

A chase ensued across the Crescent City Connection and into New Orleans. The truck hit several cars during the chase which ended in the 500 block of St. Andrews, in the River Garden area. The truck hit a tree, drove over a fence and hit another vehicle in a parking lot before coming to a rest. The 17-year-old driver was immediately taken into custody, while the 16-year-old passenger, was tracked down by members of the NOPD's Canine Unit between Felicity and St. James Streets.

Deputies found a Glock 26 handgun inside the truck.

Both will be charged with resisting arrest, attempted murder, possession of stolen property and aggravated obstruction of highway.
