BILLINGS — Law enforcement officers were led on a slow-speed chase by a pair of 10-year-olds who reportedly stole an RV from an auto auction yard at around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, according to Billings Police Sgt. Harley Cagle.

Cagle said a driver called in to report the RV after it was driving erratically and trying to run another car off the road.

Officers found the vehicle on Sugar Avenue and started a slow-speed chase where speeds ranged from 10 to 25 miles per hour.

Officers were able to bring the RV to a safe stop after popping all of its tires with spike strips. The chase ended near 3218 South Frontage Road.

No one was injured, Cagle said. The two children were safely brought back to their parents Tuesday night.

Cagle said the investigation continues and charges are pending upon further investigation of possible damage to the auto auction property.

Personnel from the Billings Police Department, Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office, and Montana Highway Patrol assisted in the chase, Cagle said.
