Young told them to stop and one did, but other ran over the hill. Chief Deputy Allen Haueter stayed at the cruiser to watch the one taken into custody and the other arriving deputies tracked the other boy utilizing K-9 Jesy.

Other deputies set up a perimeter, but the search was called off after about 45 minutes.
