A 15-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday in connection with five car thefts and 30 car burglaries that occurred in the central part of Naperville.

The teen, a Chicago resident, was discovered behind the wheel of one of the stolen cars near Tamarack Drive and Washington Street at about 5 a.m., the same time police were “investigating a number of burglaries to motor vehicles” and reports of vehicles being stolen from outside homes in the contiguous Hobson West, Maplebrook, Olympic Terrace and West Highlands neighborhoods, Cmdr. Jason Arres said in a news release.

Police pulled the teen over, only to have him take off on foot, Arres said. He was taken into custody a short time later and charged as a juvenile with burglary, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, obstructing identification and resisting arrest.

Investigators also found a sixth stolen car in the area, which was reported taken in Chicago.
