SANTA FE, N.M. — A rollover crash put an end to a day long crime spree perpetuated by two 15-year-olds and a 12-year-old.
This crash was a footnote to a drug-fueled, crime-filled day for the boys that began early Sunday morning when they stole two bikes from a mobile home.
They then waited for a homeowner to leave so they could use a rock to bust a window and get inside. The trio drove off in a vehicle using a set of keys they snagged from inside the home.
Police were called after the 12-year-old, who was driving, almost hit an off-duty cop in an unmarked vehicle. This led to a high-speed chase that ended with the boy flipping the car.
Police would find stolen electronic equipment in the car along with three stoned boys who admitted they had already sold some of their loot to buy drugs and had been smoking weed right before the crash.
They were all taken to the hospital to treat minor injuries.
Get this… the 12 year-old has been on probation since he was 10 and wears GPS tracking bracelet. He is now facing charges of DWI, motor vehicle theft, burglary, eluding and reckless driving as well as driving without a license.
The 15 year-olds are charged with vehicle theft and burglary.
So whose to blame? Even good kids go bad, we see that all the time. Children are not always reflective of their parents or how well\bad they were raised. But come on… 10-years-old and wearing a GPS ankle bracelet?Tags: Crime, DUI, Juvenile, New Mexico, Robbery
