Durham was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, obstructing justice, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, no valid driver's license and speeding. He was transported to the Williamson County Jail.

The juvenile was taken to the Carbondale Police Department for eventual return to Gateway.
