A missing Oklahoma juvenile was taken into custody Friday by Ardmore police after allegedly attempting to elude an officer while in possession of meth.
The juvenile was reportedly traveling north in a Chevrolet Tahoe on the east access road of South Commerce St. around 12:24 a.m. when an officer observed the individual making a rapid turn and followed, said Ardmore Police Department Captain Keith Ingle.
After turning onto SW Isabel Street, Ingle said the vehicle picked up speed to over 50 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone and ran into a residence at the 600 block of SW McCullough. The juvenile then fled on foot and was captured a short time after, Ingle said.
Ingle said officers discovered CDS, or meth, and paraphernalia in the juvenile’s vehicle and in addition to complaints for attempting to elude, the juvenile was allegedly driving without a license.
The individual is assumed to have run away from his or her home in Calumet, Okla., a town west of Oklahoma City, Ingle said.
“The juvenile saw their own picture on the wall and said, ‘That’s me, you can go ahead and take that down,” Ingle said.
Following the arrest, the juvenile was transported by the Carter County Sheriff’s Office to a juvenile confinement facility where the individual is waiting until the District Attorney’s Office decides how to proceed.
