Three 15 Year-Old Amigos, One Stolen Truck
A week-end of adventure ends with a trip to juvie in La Crosse for three boys. Cops say the three fifteen year-olds escaped from a group home in Sparta early on Saturday morning, somehow got to La Crosse and then holed up in a friend's house for a time until the friend's mom found out. Then, they were just killing time until running across a truck on the street at a rummage sale. The boys grabbed the truck and took off as the owner watched it drive away. Cops finally tracked them down on Sunday. They suspect the boys may have also stolen a van in Sparta.
