A 15-year-old Morton Ranch High School student was arrested Monday on charges of stealing the truck he drove to school. And that's not all.
Deputies spotted the Toyota Tacoma in the parking lot and began watching it closely.

Later, three teenage boys and a girl got in.
Deputies said when they tried to pull them over, the driver jumped a curb and took off.
After a short chase, the teens bailed out.
The driver and the girl were caught.
Two boys got away.
More charges are expected to be filed in connection with the chase.
