Surrender might be first step in Folsom juvenile's turnaround

From Bill Lindelof:

Folsom police say a juvenile who wanted to make a new start in 2010 gave himself up in a dramatic way on Sunday.

Police say the young man, a suspect in a car theft who they believe evaded arrest a few days earlier, gave himself up in the middle of a park soccer field.

The suspect "dramatically waited for officers to arrive by standing dead center of a soccer field in the park," a Folsom police news release stated.

The incident started Wednesday when officers tried to pull over a stolen red Honda near Willowmere Drive and Montrose Drive. However, the car drove away and then pulled into a school parking lot.

Both the driver and passenger fled on foot in Ed Mitchell Park, leading to an unsuccessful search of the area.

On Sunday, officers were dispatched back to Ed Mitchell Park.

"It appeared that guilt had set in, and the juvenile perpetrator decided the right way to start the New Year would be to admit last year's misgivings," the press release stated. "He was forthright with officers regarding his crime and associated vehicle burglaries he used the stolen vehicle to commit."

The young man was arrested on suspicion of auto theft and multiple counts of vehicle burglary.
