PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) – Two teenage boys are under arrest after they attempted to rob a police station.
Port St. Lucie police say the two boys – ages 12 and 14 – walked into the lobby of a regional station Wednesday afternoon and demanded money from an aide behind the glass enclosure.
Police say the 12-year-old hid one hand under his jacket as if he had a gun. Another aide ran into the back screaming for help.
Within minutes, a half dozen officers, some with guns drawn, burst into the lobby and arrested the boys. Both are charged with attempted armed robbery.
It’s stories like this that make me wish America’s Dumbest Criminals was still on the air. :-)
