Kids on 'joyride' in snow crash into parked cars in Mount Penn

MOUNT PENN, Pa. - It's certainly not what police in one part of Berks County wanted to deal with during the snowstorm early Thursday morning.

Three juveniles on a joyride in the snow crashed into at least seven vehicles in the 2500 block of Perkiomen Avenue in Mount Penn, police said, worsening the snowy commute on one of the busiest routes into Reading from the city's eastern suburbs. 

The suspects fled the scene, but police said they managed to apprehend one of them. The other two remain at large.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Crime Alert Berks County via anonymous text to 847411, starting the message with keyword alertberks, or by calling 877-373-9913.
