3 juveniles arrested after crashing stolen SUV on Buckeye Road, Madison police say

3 juveniles arrested after crashing stolen SUV on Buckeye Road, Madison police say


One of the vehicles involved in the crash flipped over. The Madison Police Department has edited the photo to obscure the license plate. 

Three juveniles were arrested Sunday morning after stealing an SUV, running a red light and crashing into another vehicle, Madison police said. 

No one was seriously injured in the crash, but the occupant of the other vehicle was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, Madison police Sgt. Joseph Engler said in a statement.

A home security company called Boundary allows homeowners to hire a burglar to test their home security. The consultation involves the felon explaining how they would gain entry to the owner's home. The ex-burglar will also offer the homeowner tips on how to improve their security against potential robbers. "Most of us don’t have the mindset of a burglar and, therefore wouldn’t spot half of the places they might be able to gain access to in our homes," Robin Knox, CEO Of Boundary. The company’s employees include people who had been burgling homes for up to 12 years. Boundary are looking to expand the service after receiving large amounts of interest. The company are currently hiring burglars with at least one conviction and have knowledge of domestic burglaries.

The stolen SUV was seen speeding along Highway 51 when it ran a red light at the Buckeye Road intersection around 8:20 a.m., crashing into another SUV and taking down a traffic light, Engler said. 

Four juveniles, who were inside the stolen vehicle, fled the scene after the crash, Engler said. Monona police officers, nearby because of an unrelated investigation, arrested a girl who had fled. 

Monona police and Madison residents kept eyes on the other juveniles until Madison police arrived and arrested two boys, Engler said. The fourth juvenile was not immediately caught. 

The three who were arrested were first taken to local hospitals, but had "no outward injuries." Police took the children to the Dane County Juvenile Reception Center. 

Personnel from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and Madison Traffic Engineering made repairs to the downed traffic light.
