Police suspect the 16-year-old Greenwich boy who stole his grandmother's car was in the Sandusky area when he contacted her.

"The juvenile has contacted his grandmother at least three times. He told her he was going to bring the car back Friday, but he didn't do it," Greenwich Police Chief Steve Dorsey said Monday.

Village police are continuing to look for the suspect and the stolen car, a silver 2012 Chevrolet Cruze.

"We think he is in the Sandusky area ... or he was when he called," Dorsey said.

The grandmother reported her car was stolen from her West Main Street home in Greenwich on Wednesday. Early Thursday, she requested the Bellevue Police Department check one of her grandson's friend's houses on Glendale Avenue, but her vehicle wasn't there.

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

The boy has a driver's permit who didn't have permission to take the car, the chief said. The suspect's grandparents, are his guardians.

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