MOSES LAKE, Wash. (19DEC2016) — Grant County deputies quickly arrested two juveniles Monday morning after they stole a car from a Moses Lake home.

The owner of the car phoned 9-1-1 around 5:00 a.m. Monday after he noticed his car was just stolen from the 4800 block of Airway Drive Northeast.

A few minutes later, a patrol deputy spotted the car, a 1996 Honda Accord, near Grape Drive and Beacon Road. After following the Honda for about a mile, deputies tried to pull the car over. The Honda sped up and then slid on the ice, striking a pickup truck parked in front of 9120 Space Street.

Two persons jumped from the Honda and ran. After a foot chase through a snow-covered field, deputies and Moses Lake police caught the two male juveniles and took them into custody without further incident.
