More details have come to light a day after two teenagers were arrested on North Garfield Street after police said they burglarized a home and led officers on a vehicle chase.
According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office, two more male juveniles were arrested in the case, totaling four juveniles in all.
Each boy faces similar charges of burglary, receiving stolen property and conspiracy to commit a crime, among other charges, the Sheriff's office stated in a report.
According to the report, after the first two boys were located and taken into custody in Lodi, deputies investigating the incident discovered blood near a window that was broken. That broken window was used to get the boys into the home, the report stated.
Deputies said that a 15-year-old boy suspected of involvement in the burglary was dropped off at a local clinic by the juveniles who were arrested in Lodi, before they led police officers on a chase through the city.
The 15-year-old was transported to a local hospital for treatment. He was later released to his mother on the condition that he promise to appear in court, the report stated.
Later Tuesday, a second 13-year-old boy was located and also taken into custody, according to the report. He was booked at San Joaquin County Juvenile Hall.
On Tuesday morning, officers from California Highway Patrol, the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office and the Lodi Police Department followed a red, four-door Chevrolet truck through Lodi after it had been reported that the driver and a passenger had burglarized a home on the 4800 block of East Woodbridge Road.
The driver pulled the car over on the 200 block of North Garfield Street in Lodi. It was discovered that the driver, a 14-year-old boy, and his passenger, a 13-year-old boy, had multiple television sets, a laptop computer and jewelry located in the back of the truck and in the bed of the truck.
They were arrested by Sheriff's deputies and booked at the San Joaquin County Juvenile Hall.
