Tulsa County Deputies have three juvenile suspects in custody after a chase ended with a crash near 48th St North and Osage Dr.

According to deputies, the vehicle was taken from a family member without their permission. 

Tulsa County Sheriff's Office says a deputy spotted the car speeding across a parking lot in northern Tulsa.  When he tried to stop it, the driver sped away leading to a chase. 

The chase then went through a neighborhood and deputies say they started to see the people in the car throwing out beer cans. Shortly after the car overcorrected and ran through a man's yard and into his neighbor's fence.

"Anytime someone runs and we get them stopped, we don't know what they are running for or if they are armed so we always take it as a felony situation," said Tulsa County Sgt. Travis Jones. "It's dangerous. its dangerous for everybody including them," 

Neighbor Charles Towns says they deal with people speeding through the neighborhood a lot and this will be the second time his neighbor has had to replace his fence this year. 

"It sounded like something went off a big bomb or something and I jumped up and looked and my mailbox was down and all I seen was the tail end of the car going in," said Towns.

No one was injured but one suspect is still on the run police believe he is an adult.
