Utah teens, 14 and 15, arrested after stealing airplane, police say

After stealing the small single-engine Cessna, the boys flew around 15 miles along highway 40 before making a successful landing at Vernal Regional Airport. According to a statement shared by the Uintah County Sheriff's Office just eight hours ago, investigators believe that the theft was carried out by two boys aged 14 and 15.

On Thanksgiving morning, the teens commandeered a tractor, which they drove to the airstrip.

Brian Fletcher of the Uintah County Sheriff's Office said the juvenile pilot was familiar with that type of aircraft.

Investigators with the Uintah County Sheriff's Office say the teens, ages 14 and 15, left a group home from along the Wasatch Front earlier in the week and made their way to eastern Utah where they had been staying with friends near the town of Jensen. Witnesses told police they spotted the plane flying very low along the U.S. Route 40, police said.

The teens were apprehended by authorities after landing in Vernal, and are being held in the Split Mountain Youth Detention Center on multiple charges. Investigation into the incident is ongoing. CBS News reported Vernal Regional Airport is roughly 170 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. In recordings with air traffic controllers, Russell claimed he learned to fly from video games.
