12-year-old arrested for the 3rd time in four months after stealing another car

Not quite sure why this kid is free to steal another car after stealing one previously, which would land an adult in jail for up to 20 years.

According to police, the boy, who’s about 5 foot 4 and 125 pounds, was among a group of five boys seen running from another stolen car at 4:45 a.m. Tuesday.

4:45am on a Tuesday, you know, a normal time for a 12-year-old to be out with friends. Although, I do give them props for this one, even though I’m sure they didn’t do it intentionally:

While the officer was signaling for the car to pull over, the youths stopped just before coming to North Lake Avenue and ran away, leaving the stolen car in drive, Smith said. The officer had to jump inside and put the car in park as it rolled into the street.

The article closing with this gem really is the icing on the cake:

After Tuesday’s arrest, the child was released to his mother.
