SIDNEY, Iowa (AP) — Three teenagers suspected of crimes in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska have been captured in southwest Iowa.
Fremont County sheriff’s deputies found the three inside the public library on Tuesday. The three bolted but were soon captured after foot chases.
The three had been reported missing from a youth center in Manning.
Nebraska authorities had alerted the Fremont County deputies as Otoe County, Neb., deputies were chasing a pickup believed stolen in Plattsmouth, Neb. Fremont County deputies soon were tipped that the pickup was seen in Sidney.
The three are suspected of vehicle theft in Manning, a police pursuit in Atchison County, Mo., thefts in Nemaha County, Neb., and vehicle theft and arson in Cass County, Neb.
Two of the teens are 16; the other is 13.
