Police: 15-year-old steals car, winds up backing into fence at DUI checkpoint

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A driving under the influence checkpoint caught a different kind of crime overnight.

The Kansas City Police Department were set-up at Seventh Street and Prospect Avenue when a 15-year-old drove up to the checkpoint and then tried to back out of it, right into a secured fence.

Police do not believe the boy was under the influence.

Officers said they believe the kid used a screwdriver to break into what they think was a stolen car where he then took it for a joyride.
