ATLANTIC CITY — Two city teenagers were arrested Tuesday after a group of five boys were found riding in a stolen car, police said.

At 10:34 p.m. Tuesday, police Sgt. Michael Arroyo spotted a vehicle that was reported stolen two hours earlier. Arroyo, along with backup officers, stopped the car at Stenton and Atlantic avenues, and the driver jumped out of the car and ran on foot, police said.

The driver was a 15-year-old boy, police said.

When Officers George Mancuso and Robert Reynolds chased the teen, they lost sight of him. K-9 Officer Marinela Pali and her partner, Roxy, then began a search for the teen, police said.

Roxy led officers to a fenced-in yard in the 2700 block of Monterrey Avenue, where the boy surrendered and was arrested, police said.

Arroyo and other officers arrested the four other boys who stayed in the vehicle, police said.

Two 15-year-old boys from Atlantic City were charged in the incident. One was charged with receiving stolen property and was released to a parent. The other was charged with receiving stolen property and resisting arrest and was sent to the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Facility in Egg Harbor City.

The three other juveniles were released to their parents. The stolen vehicle was returned to the owner, police said.
