Officers in Chicago spotted the stolen 2018 Nissan Murano on Friday in the Englewood neighborhood.  A short pursuit happened with the juvenile driver sideswiping other vehicles before crashing.  Officers say they found a loaded handgun inside the stolen car.  The boy’s name is not being released because of his young age. 

The investigation continues into who else was involved in the thefts of the Murano and a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta which was also found in Chicago.  The thefts happened last Friday morning.  Other vehicles were broken into but not stolen. Officers say keys were left inside the two cars that were stolen. The suspects searched vehicles over about a seven block area.
