Wrestler suspected

of stealing car Saturday


A 16-year-old boy who came to Steamboat to compete in a wrestling tournament had an unexpected takedown when Steamboat Springs Police officers arrested him on suspicion of automobile theft Saturday night.

The 16-year-old boy, who was competing with a Denver area high school in the Steamboat Invitational, was reported missing from the Steamboat Springs High School at about 6:40 p.m.

At about 10:38 p.m., the boy reportedly was seen stealing a car at a residence in the 3100 block of Ingles Lane, in the east end of Steamboat, Officer Bill Stucker said.

At that residence, the boy was said to have gotten into one car, started it and then hit three other vehicles, Stucker said.

Owners of the car reportedly heard it start and went to check on the car. At that point, Stucker said, the juvenile was said to have gotten spooked, left the car and fled the scene on foot.

The suspect later was found and taken into custody at the Holiday Inn, which is close to Ingles Lane. The juvenile was arrested on suspicion of automobile theft.
