SUDBURY (CBS) – Police arrested a 17-year-old boy who allegedly crashed a stolen BMW before trying to break into a car at a nearby home.

Around 5 a.m. on Thursday, an officer spotted a car speeding down Boston Post Road. While turning around, the officer lost sight of it.

While responding to an open 911 call, which police now believe was made by the stolen BMW’s automated system, an officer found the car had crashed through a guardrail on Boston Post Road. It ended up in a stream near Station Road.

    Giant underage drinking parties and stolen/crashed vehicles. Does anyone have a handle on the teens in Sudbury or are these isolated incidents?

    They are children we have selfishly abandoned them. As adults we had the privilege of being educated.
