Two teens were arrested by Bibb County sheriff's deputies Thursday morning after attempting to flee from authorities in a stolen car.
A resident in the Timber Ridge subdivision in south Bibb County spotted the teens after 4 a.m. going through his neighbors car, according to a sheriff's office news release.
The resident went outside, called out to the suspects and they ran off and entered a light blue Ford Edge that was parked on the street.
Deputies arrived within minutes and spotted the car. The suspects made a left turn on Hartley Bridge Road and entered a curve near Bonanza Drive where they lost control and flipped over into a ditch, the news release stated.
The driver, Zashon Eugene Morant, 17, climbed out of the car and ran. He was later caught hiding in nearby woods. The 15-year-old passenger tried to run after getting out of the car, but deputies captured him before he could get away, the news release stated.
