Police spotted the 2017 SSR dirt bike near East Admiral Place and East 1st Street just after 12:35 a.m. Officers attempted to stop the bike, but lost sight of it several times before the pursuit finally ended at 4th and Allegheny.
Inside the juvenile's backpack, police say they found the Ouija board. They said the juvenile told police he and his friends were at the cemetery trying to talk to deceased relatives before heading home. On his way, the juvenile says he spotted police and sped off.
Police say the unidentified juvenile was arrested on an eluding complaint.
