Stolen Stretch Proved To Be Easy Catch

Posted on August 3, 2011

[UPDATED: 8/4/11; 12:15 p.m./9:15 a.m. EDT/PDT: Stolen Stretch Limousine Found]

MARS, Penn. — Six Butler County teens are still on the run after stealing a limousine in the parking lot of Mars Area High School, police chief William Westerman said Wednesday morning.

At about 6:15 a.m., four teens left the Mars Home for Youth and walked across the street to the high school parking lot, where they ordered a limousine to pick them up and take them to a bus station in Pittsburgh, he said.

Once inside the limo, they were unable to provide enough money to cover the cost, which caused the driver to exit the car to remove their belongings, Westerman said. At that point, two of the teens got into the driver's seat, he said, and picked up another two teenagers as they drove off.

Westerman said police have not received leads or calls reporting the sighting of the stolen limo.

The Mars Home for Youth, which helps at-risk children, said it is conducting an internal investigation as well as working with police.

"We regret that the individuals involved in the incident cast a shadow over the achievements of the thousands of people we have helped to realize success at home, in school, in careers and in the community," the home said in a statement.
