Police charged two youths early Saturday with stealing a car from the 500 block of Ninth Street.
The owner of the 1998 Mercury told police she started the car just after 1 a.m. and left it running momentarily to warm up. When she returned moments later, the vehicle was gone.
Officer Michael Lee stopped the car a short time later in the 1300 block of Niagara Street, arresting the passenger, 16-year-old Kenneth L. Graham II of 74th Street, and charging him with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
The juvenile driver, whose name and age were not released, was turned over to his grandmother and will be petitioned to Family Court. The car was returned to its owner.
