Tisdell was arraigned Monday in Worcester District Court on traffic charges. A not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf and he was released on $500 cash bail. Nabulsi and ­Ocasio did not appear at their arraignments, and police have issued arrest warrants for them, said Timothy Connolly, a spokesman for Worcester District ­Attorney Joseph D. Early.

State Police said a trooper saw the teenagers’ blue Subaru speeding on Interstate 290 around 7:15 a.m. Sunday. When the trooper attempted to pull the car over, the driver ­allegedly sped down an exit and crashed into a building at the corner of Shrewsbury and Prentice streets, State Police said.

Three of the teenagers allegedly ran from the scene of the wreck, but the trooper apprehended them, State Police said.

When Nabulsi was taken ­into custody, he was carrying two shopping bags stuffed $148,030 in cash, State Police said. He told police he grabbed the cash out of parked vehicle in Worcester, authorities added.

Tisdell was arrested a short time later, State Police said.
