Teen arrested after chase, allegedly carried guns in his car

From Kim Minugh:

Sacramento police arrested a 16-year-old boy this weekend for allegedly having two loaded handguns in his car - a discovery made after the boy had blown several stop signs and crashed into several cars, according to a police report.

Just before midnight Friday, an officer saw a car speed through several stop signs in the area of 21st Avenue and 73rd Street, according to the report. The officer estimated the car was going 80 miles per hour, and turned on his lights and sirens to pursue the car.

The officer temporarily lost sight of the vehicle - until it had crashed into five cars in the area of Toronto Way and 79th Street, in the Colonial Village neighborhood, the report states. The officer located a 16-year-old boy walking away from the car, and found two loaded handguns inside the vehicle, according to the report.

The boy was booked into juvenile hall on two weapons-related charges and one charge related to his driver's license, the report states.
