Four people were arrested in Delray Beach after a stolen car was spotted in Boca Raton.

The Boca Raton Police Department says just before 3 a.m. Wednesday, officers observed a stolen Toyota Solara driving along Yamato Road.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled north out of Boca Raton in to Delray Beach.

Officers with the Delray Beach Police Department stopped the vehicle and arrested the four occupants.

Boca Raton police say one of the suspects is a 16-year-old boy who has a criminal history of more than 20 charges in the past two years.

Police say the teen is a suspect in a burglary/vehicle theft from June in the Boca Madera neighborhood and in April he was charged with four auto burglaries that occurred in the L'Ambiance neighborhood.

At the time he was arrested, the teen had nine pick-up orders, according to Boca Raton police.
