Three juveniles have been arrested on felony charges after a burglary in LaPorte County this morning. The LaPorte County Sheriff's Office says a witness reported the incident just before 10am, in the 12-hundred block of Goldring Road, and observed the suspected vehicle flee the area. Authorities report the vehicle was located several minutes later, driving erratically along County Road 400 North, near U-S Highway 421, and continuing onto westbound I-94 at a high rate of speed, until it crashed into a semi and came to a stop at the Lake/Porter County line. The Sheriff's Office says the 17 year old driver from Gary fled on foot, but was captured shortly thereafter, while a 16 year old female passenger from Merrillville was taken into custody without incident. Officials say both are charged with felony burglary, and that a 17 year old LaPorte juvenile has been charged with aiding, causing and inducing a crime.
