Youngsters, 12-14, Busted for Stealing Cars in North Side Parking Lot

Who says today's young people don't have any ambition? Four young teenagers, including one 12 year old were up at 4AM today---stealing cars from the parking lot of a north side Walmart, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Police say the teens, between the ages of 14 and 12, tried unsuccessfully to break into one parked car in the lot at Loop 1604 and US 281, then stole another car that had been left running while the driver jumped out to deliver newspapers.

Officers say they led police on a brief chase through the suburb of Hill Country Village before they were cornered.  All four were arrested.  Police say the ringleader, who actually stole the car and will face the most serious charges, is a 13 year old girl.
