A 14-year-old boy took his mother's car for a joyride early Friday, which ended with the vehicle crashing into a building.
An officer tried to stop a vehicle traveling on Fisher around 12:30 a.m. without any headlights, said Sgt. John Kissee of the Huber Heights Police Division.
"Upon activating his overhead lights, the vehicle pulled into the apartment complex and accelerated in a rapid manner, drove over a grassy hill, lost control and drove into the building," Kissee said.
The teenager, who was not injured, crashed into the Glenburn Green apartment complex's rental office and maintenance building, Kissee said. The vehicle was towed from the complex in the 4500 block of Bufort Boulevard.
The teen apparently took the car keys from his mother's purse while she was sleeping, Kissee said. He was cited into juvenile court and released to his mother's custody.
