Five juveniles were arrested about 5 p.m. Sunday and accused of attempting to steal a new car from Massaro Motors on Chevy Place after stealing license plates and the car keys.
Two 13-year-olds and three 14-year-olds were taken into custody by Officers Kevin Kohnke and William Thomson following a foot chase.
Kohnke said the boys smashed a window at the dealership and one slipped through it. He said license plates were taken from the showroom and put on the vehicle and keys to it were also taken.
The boys only got as far as a nearby field after a neighborhood resident called police. They face Family Court charges of burglary, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
