WEDNESDAY

-2:41 p.m.: pursuit. Anna and Botkins Police and Deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of West Lynn Street in Dinsmore Township on the report of a pursuit of two dirt bikes.

According to Botkins Police Chief Tom Glass, two Botkins juvenile males, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, are facing felony charges for eluding police as well as multiple traffic charges. He said the two juveniles traveled to Botkins School on the dirt bikes, which they were not licensed to be riding upon the street, nor did the dirt bikes have licensed tags. When the students were leaving school property, they were seen popping wheelies, and other inappropriate behavior, while operating the bikes.

Glass said when law enforcement tried to stop the students, they fled until the pursuit ended at a field on Southland Road near the Auglaize County line. The juveniles had gone off the road and entered a field on private property. Botkins Police then went to the Botkins School to review video to identify the young men. After obtaining the students’ names, police then contacted their parents and issued charges, which are pending with Shelby County Juvenile Court.
