Two teens are facing charges after police said they tried stealing hemp plants while being in possession of a stolen car.
Early in the morning on Monday, police in Easton received a call from a farm on Sport Hill Road reporting suspicious people on the property.
Turns out, police said Josue Gonzalez-Vazquez and Jacob Castro, both 19, were allegedly trying to steal legally regulated hemp plants that are used to produce CBD oil.
The two fled in a dark colored Honda that had a New York registration.
While fleeing from police, the car ended up crashing near the Exit 46 entrance/exit ramp to the Merritt Parkway.
The driver fled on foot while the passenger stayed at the scene. The driver was later captured by state police.
