A 15-year-old Wai'anae boy was arrested yesterday after a state Department of Land and Natural Resources enforcement officer saw him driving recklessly down a dead-end street.

The officer ran a check on vehicle's license plate and learned that an 18-year-old woman had reported the vehicle as stolen.

The DLNR officer used his own vehicle to block the other driver's path and called police who arrested the youth about 4:30 p.m. for suspicion of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle.
