ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Three teens were arrested after a suspicious neighbor called police to investigate a car parked in an Annapolis neighborhood that turned out to be stolen, police said.

The teens were sitting in a parked car in the unit block of Rockwell Court at about 9:34 a.m. Monday, when someone called police to say the group had been in the idle vehicle for about two hours.

When police arrived, the three occupants of the car fled on foot. All three were later located and arrested by Annapolis police after a check of the car’s tags showed it was a vehicle that had previously been reported stolen to the Baltimore Police Department.

The alleged driver of the stolen car, 18-year-old Sincere Brown of Annapolis, was charged with possession of stolen property, police said. He was released on his own recognizance after seeing the District Court Commissioner. The two other passengers in the car, a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy, were charged on juvenile citations with possession of stolen property. They were released to their guardians.
