BARSTOW• Three juveniles were arrested and one suspect remains on the loose, after they crashed a stolen car into a fence on Virginia Way Thursday morning, according to a Barstow Police news release.

Barstow police and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended the three young suspects who ran off after the crash near 628 E. Virginia Way, with the fourth suspect at large, the release said.

At approximately 1 a.m., the four suspects were riding in a 2012 silver Honda Civic, which failed to yield to California Highway Patrol officers near Dolph Court and Seventh Avenue in Barstow, police said.

Authorities determined that the vehicle had been stolen Wednesday from the Victorville area.

After the suspects fled the crash, police officers were able to locate the first suspect as he was knocking on an apartment window trying to gain entry, and CHP officers identified him as the driver of the stolen vehicle, police said.

The suspect had a no-bail San Bernardino County warrant.

The second suspect was located in the area by a police officer and was detained at Mountain View and Seventh Street, police said. CHP officers identified the suspect as fleeing from the stolen vehicle.

Sheriff’s deputies located and detained the third suspect in the Food 4 Less parking lot on Virginia Way, and CHP officers identified him as also fleeing from the vehicle.

CHP took custody of all three suspects and the stolen vehicle, police said.

During the residential car theft in Victorville, a motorcycle and other personal property were also determined to be stolen, according to police.
