7 / 15 Two West Bend Children Drive car for a Second Time

Two West Bend cousins, ages 9 and 4, were driving the rural roads of Washington County over the weekend for the second time in a month. According to the report from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, in their latest illegal driving adventure, on Sunday morning the pair stole a car from the nine year olds step father. Lt. Martin Schulteis said the children told deputies this time they wanted to go to a park. Last month, it was to go to their Grandmother’s home. Sheriff Deputies report they received a 9-1-1  call just after nine am. The caller reported seeing a vehicle being operated by two young children and that the child driving the vehicle was not able to keep the vehicle in the correct lane of traffic. A Washington County Sheriff’s deputy was able to intercept the vehicle about three miles from the initial 911 call location. Sheriff’s officials say before the deputy was able to stop the vehicle it was driven into the ditch in the area of County Trunk A and Trading Post Trail in the Town of Farmington. No one was injured and the vehicle was not damaged when it went off the road. Deputies on scene were able to identify the children as same two children that were involved in a similar incident on June 14th in the Town of Barton.  Sheriff’s officials say they will not be seeking any traffic-related charges for the children, but the stolen vehicle complaint and the circumstances regarding the missing vehicle were turned over to West Bend police and the Washington County Department of Human Services
