Two teens arrested after car is stolen from Chuck E. Cheese's parking lot in Augusta

Two 15-year-olds stole a car and led police on a short chase before crashing Friday afternoon, authorities said.

Around 2:15 p.m., Roy Bender, the manager of Chuck E. Cheese’s on Wrightsboro Road, left his keys on a table at the restaurant while he went to grab something, Richmond County Capt. Scott Gay said. When he came back out the keys were gone.

Bender ran into the parking lot to see his car being driven east on Wrightsboro Road and called police. Two cars in the area quickly found the vehicle and chased it before it crashed.

No one was injured, Gay said.

Both teens, a girl and a boy, were booked into Augusta Regional Youth Detention Center.
