Teen-ager faces charge of fleeing confinement


A 17-year-old Westminster youth who had been confined to his house on a court-ordered home detention program was arrested at 2:09 a.m. yesterday and charged with escape from confinement and with being a child in need of supervision.

Detective Wayne Mann said he had received information that the youth was leaving his house during the early morning hours and positioned himself to observe the boy's activities.

Shortly after 2 a.m., the detective reported, he saw the teen-ager walk out of his home and leave the area in a car. The detective followed and arrested the youth, who later was released in his mother's custody.
