Austin teens run out of gas in Nobles County in suspected stolen vehicle

In the courts

WORTHINGTON — Three teenagers suspected of stealing a motor vehicle were discovered by a Nobles County Sheriff's Office deputy late Sunday evening after the vehicle ran out of gas along Interstate 90.

The teenagers, from Austin, told the deputy they were traveling from Gerard Academy, an Austin-based juvenile treatment facility, to Magnolia, but had run out of gas near Worthington. One of the juveniles admitted to taking the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and said it "could have been stolen," the complaint states.

The owner of the vehicle is listed as a trucking company from Austin, which had not reported the vehicle as stolen.

As a result, the teens have been charged in Nobles County Juvenile Court.

John D. McClain, 16, faces felony possession of stolen property and tampering with a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor.


Brendan R. Allen and William B. Rysdam, both 16, have been charged with felony receiving stolen property and misdemeanor tampering with a motor vehicle.

The teenager's cases are public because they're older than 16 and face felonies.
