Village police are continuing to look for a teenage boy accused of stealing his grandmother's car.

A silver 2012 Chevrolet Cruz was stolen from West Main Street in Greenwich. The victim reported it was stolen about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Greenwich Police Chief Steve Dorsey said the suspect is a 16-year-old village boy, the grandson of the victim, with a driver's permit who didn't have permission to take the car. The chief said the boy lives with his grandparents, who are his guardians.

"He left a letter explaining why he took the vehicle," Dorsey said.

The Bellevue Police Department assisted with the investigation.

The victim reported her grandson "took off" in her car from Greenwich, police said. She requested a Bellevue officer check one of her grandson's friend's houses on Glendale Avenue, but her vehicle wasn't there early Thursday.

"They checked for the car in their jurisdiction," Dorsey said.

Anyone with information about the theft is encouraged to call the Greenwich Police Department at (419) 752-2681.
