Columbus Serial Juvenile Car Thief At It Again
Law enforcement officials dubbed them the “Game Over Kids.” Columbus juveniles, they say, are responsible for the majority of car thefts.
Tyrez Turner is on that list. On Wednesday afternoon, the game was back on.
Sources with the Columbus Division of Police tell The Sussi Report that the 17-year-old led police on a chase in a stolen car. When officers caught Turner, sources said they discovered at least one loaded gun in the vehicle.
Officers arrested Turner and transported him to the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center, where Turner is a frequent visitor.
Between September 2017 and April 2022, law enforcement officials said that Turner was charged 31 times for gun and car theft. He’s also been charged with other crimes like aggravated burglary, assault, and receiving stolen property.
Last April, a CPD officer suffered a broken left arm when he exited his cruiser and attempted to stop Turner, who was behind the wheel of a stolen SUV. That same day, CPD sources said that officers found a loaded Glock in Turner’s bedroom and an assault rifle in the living room at an apartment on Shore Boulevard West where Turner stayed.
In October of 2021, Turner streamed a live video on his Facebook page of him and another juvenile leading Obetz police on a chase in a stolen car while waving guns. Speeds reached up to 100 miles per hour.
