Michael Scott Rindahl, 18, and Chase McClaine Forest, 19, were arrested earlier this month after reportedly stealing a 2001 Corvette from a yard owned by Endicott Enterprises. Why? Maybe because the boys were just being stupid teenagers or maybe for payback…
In a 2007 trial, Rindahl had testified against Endicott, 72, for child molestation. Endicott was put behind bars in the Sacramento County Jail without bail one year later for six felony counts of child molestation charges.
But, regardless of the past, the two young boys had also created a crime: trespassing on private property with suspicion of commercial burglary and auto theft.
The boys were stopped after a long police car pursuit chase by the California Highway Patrol and detained without incident. They were booked into the Tehama County Jail with a bail set at $20,000 each.
Sad situation for all parties, but fortunately the Corvette was returned undamaged.
