Three teenagers were arrested Sunday morning after stealing an SUV, running over a red light and crashing into another vehicle, Madison police said.

No one was seriously injured in the accident, but the occupant of the other vehicle was rushed to hospital with minor injuries, Madison Police Sgt. Joseph Engler said in a statement.

A home security company called Boundary allows homeowners to hire a burglar to test their home security. The counseling involves the felon explaining how he would get access to the owner’s house. The ex-burglar will also give homeowners tips on how to improve their security against potential robbers. “Most of us don’t have a burglar mindset and so wouldn’t discover half the places we could access in our homes,” said Robin Knox, CEO of Boundary. The company’s employees include people who had broken into homes for up to 12 years. Boundary tries to expand the service after receiving great interest. The company is currently hiring burglars with at least one conviction and knowledge of home burglary.

The stolen SUV was spotted on Highway 51 driving over a red light at the Buckeye Road intersection at around 8:20 a.m., collided with another SUV, and rolled over a traffic light, Engler said.

Four teenagers who were in the stolen vehicle fled after the accident, Engler said. Monona police officers who were nearby on an unrelated investigation arrested an escaped girl.

Monona police and Madison residents kept an eye on the other teenagers until Madison police arrived and arrested two boys, Engler said. The fourth youth was not caught immediately.

The three arrested were initially taken to local hospitals but had “no external injuries”. Police took the children to the Dane County Juvenile Reception Center.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation and Madison Traffic Engineering staff were performing repairs on the failed traffic light.

SPEAKING SPIRITS

A group of students on a field trip Thursday from DeForest High School watch local actress Victoria Mecozzi with a Blue Star Service banner portray Jessie Smith during the Wisconsin Veterans Museum’s Talking Spirits Cemetery Tours: Wisconsin Women at War on Forest Hill Cemetery. Smith, who died in 1953 at the age of 72, lost her son, Lt. Robert Standish Smith, in February 1944, when his ambulance crashed into a hillside while transporting wounded soldiers from Italy to North Africa during World War II. Four crew members, three nurses and 18 wounded died in the crash. Standish Smith was buried in Sicily, but his remains were brought home two years after the war and interred in Forest Hill Cemetery. The sold out tours continue Saturday and Sunday, an online tour will be available in the coming weeks.

PUMKIN REGATTA PICKIN'S

Graduate and post-graduate students from UW Madison Professor Irwin Goldman’s Department of Horticulture laboratory carried one of a dozen large pumpkins grown by the students to a trailer in Merton Thursday. The pumpkins weigh more than 100 pounds each and will be used in the Giant Pumpkin Regatta on Lake Mendota on Saturday. At the event, which is jointly hosted by the department and the Hoofers Sailing Club, students compete against each other in the hollowed-out bowls of the pumpkins. Supporting the efforts are Shakirah Nakasagga, a postdoctoral fellow; Chandler Meyer, a PhD student; and Emilee Gaulke, a PhD student whose family owns the farm. The pumpkins were grown from seeds in a UW greenhouse in March and brought to the field in May.
