The fifth and final juvenile wanted in a string of car thefts, burglaries and a kidnapping across Colorado Springs and El Paso County is now in custody.
Authorities arrested the teen in the Stetson Hills area Thursday afternoon, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby said. The teen faces multiple charges of motor vehicle theft and burglary, which occurred after he allegedly crashed a vehicle in the Peyton area Wednesday, Kirby said.
Following the crash, the teen is suspected of burglarizing several homes and stole his parents’ vehicle in an attempt to evade authorities, Kirby said.
Four alleged accomplices – two males and two females – believed to be connected to earlier burglaries and car thefts were arrested Wednesday. The males also are accused in a county shooting Monday night and face attempted murder charges, Kirby said. Details were not released.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Two teenagers who were sought as part of a larger investigation into a crime spree involving robberies, stolen vehicles, burglaries and attempted murder, were arrested earlier this week in Colorado Springs.
Several police units tracked down and arrested two teenage suspects who allegedly went on an armed two-week crime spree from Colorado Springs to Denver in which they stole cars and used them to commit robberies, auto thefts, burglaries and an attempted murder.
Marcus Antwan Elliott, 18, and an unnamed 16-year-old suspect were arrested Monday afternoon, according to a Colorado Springs police report.
The crime spree began after the teens escaped from custody. Both had active arrest warrants for escape.
The arrest was coordinated and carried out by officers and detectives from several Colorado Springs units including patrol, robbery, tactical enforcement and vice and narcotics.
The crime spree began on June 28 and touched numerous victims. During the spree, the suspects would allegedly follow a pattern of stealing a car and then use it to commit additional crimes in Colorado Springs, Monument, El Paso County and Denver, the report says.
