Police in Eden say a juvenile stole a police car, and then led officers on a chase before it all ended badly.

Early on Sunday morning, police officers in Eden found a wrecked vehicle, and discovered that it had been

stolen from a home in Reidsville.  Then, officers say, while they were looking for the person who had taken the car, someone stole an Eden police car, and crashed it into the Mayodan police car. 

Officers from the Mayodan and Madison police departments got involved in the chase, and then Rockingham and Stokes County Sheriffs' deputies took part until, eventually, the suspect crashed in Stokes County and was taken into custody. 

Because the suspect is a juvenile, his name has not been released.   Both crashes are being investigated by the Highway Patrol, which is working with the police agencies involved to bring charges.
