JANESVILLE, Wis. — Janesville police arrested three teens Tuesday night after a vehicle reported stolen out of Sun Prairie was spotted in Janesville.

A resident first reported the “suspicious” vehicle in the 100 block of Linn Street around 10:30 p.m. They obtained the vehicle’s license plate number, which came back as a car reported stolen from Sun Prairie.

As police responded, the teens — a 17-year-old male from Janesville, a 17-year-old male from Madison, and a 16-year-old female from Janesville — reportedly abandoned the vehicle on Linn Street before running off.

Police responded to the area and located the teens running in the area of Racine Street and Park Avenue. They were taken into custody a short time later.

Authorities said they have not found the driver of the stolen vehicle.
