SAN FRANCISCO — A teenager who bolted from authorities while being taken to a juvenile detention facility in San Francisco has been caught shoplifting.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the 16-year-old boy jumped out of a moving vehicle while being transferred Wednesday from a San Bernardino County group home to the detention center because of a probation violation.
On Friday, the boy was caught trying to steal items from retail store, Allen Nance, assistant chief juvenile probation officer, said.
The boy tried to run from San Francisco and transit police, but was quickly caught and taken to juvenile hall.
Authorities did not name the minor, who is awaiting the district attorney’s decision on charges related to his escape.
