Some Kids Stole Two Cars, Then a Guardian Picked Them Up in Another Stolen Car

Get your calculator out.  You’re gonna need it to add up all the people arrested here.  Four kids in Maryland were caught driving around in two different stolen cars last week.  They were teenagers, and two adults were with them, an 18-year-old and a 21-year-old.  It turned out they’d also just stolen stuff from a nearby store.

The two adults got thrown in jail, and the four kids were charged as juveniles.  So that’s six arrests, but we’re just getting started.

The kids had to get picked up at jail by a guardian.  And when the guardian showed up, the car she was in was ALSO stolen.  There were three women in it, and a guy was driving.  Cops thought it might be hot because a back window was smashed.

After the three women got dropped off, cops tracked down the car and arrested FOUR more people inside it, the driver and three other teenagers.  Meanwhile, the three women who got dropped off at the jail ALSO got arrested.

By now, you’ve lost count, so here’s the final tally:  A total of THIRTEEN people were arrested, seven juveniles and six adults.

They all apparently knew each other and were between 13 and 21 years old.  It’s not clear what the “guardian” situation was all about, or where their parents were during all this.

Cops say all three of the stolen cars were Hyundais.  They’re being stolen a lot right now thanks to a dumb social media thing about how easy they are to steal.
