Lawrence police arrested four teenagers Tuesday morning in connection with a crime spree across the city.
Officers were first called to the Presto Convenience Store, 2330 Iowa, just before 1:30 a.m. after a suspect entered the store and stole a 30-pack of beer.
An employee was able to get the license plate number of the getaway car.
Later, that same vehicle was linked to a burglary in the 500 block of Eldridge. Police spokesman Sgt. Bill Cory said that when two people inside the residence interrupted the burglary, the suspects fled.
About 5:15 a.m., officers spotted the same car near 27th and Iowa streets and attempted to stop it. Cory said the vehicle fled, crashing into a parked car in the 2200 block of West 26th Street.
Police arrested the 18-year-old female driver on a number of charges, including driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and having no driver’s license.
At least one passenger fled on foot but was later captured. Cory said the 18-year-old male passenger suffered minor injuries in the crash. He was treated and arrested.
Police arrested two more teenagers in the area in connection with the incident.
