( Fort Wright, Ky ) - Two 17 year-old Covington boys are accused of stealing a Sport Utility Vehicle and are facing the possibility of heavy jail time. Police say the vehicle was stolen at around 1:30 a.m. at the Speedway gas station on Madison Pike. What the teens apparently did not know when they stole the vehicle was that a 4 year-old girl was sleeping in the back seat.
Police used a cell phone in the car to track the vehicle down to the Fort Mitchell Kroger parking lot. The little girl was safe, but the suspects were gone.
At around 6 a.m. the boys were arrested at the Fort Wright Driving Range.
The boys are 17 and charged as juveniles, however since they both turn 18 in a few months they could be charged as adults and receive 15 to 20 years in prison if convicted.
