Six teenagers from Florida, including one who thinks that he’s “Scarface,” carjacked a Porsche, stole two firearms and $200,000 in cash during a robbery spree.

The suspects, who are all between the ages of 14- and 16-years-old, knocked on doors in the wealthy North Hutchinson Island and went into a residence when no one answered on April 27th, the New York Daily News reported.

The property’s owner, identified as Brett Browning, came home to find his garage door ajar and his $50,000 Porsche Cayman missing. Additionally, his safe with $200,000 was missing along with his jewelry and guns.

Teens Michael Bush (top left), Joshua Sargeant (top middle), Rural Scott (top right), Walter Walker (bottom left), Shomari Smith (bottom center) and Jeremiah Laplace were all hit with multiple charges.

“It’s clear through interviews with these thugs that they targeted our community, searched out a house in an affluent neighborhood and stole their savings,” St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara said.

Teens Michael Bush, Joshua Sargeant, Rural Scott, Walter Walker, Shomari Smith and Jeremiah Laplace were all hit with numerous robbery charges, one of which includes grand theft.

All six were interviewed while in custody for various crimes. The 14-year-old Sargeant, who “believes he’s Scarface,” according to a report, is the only one of the six who did not admit to the incident.

Laplace, 15, admitted that he used the stolen cash to purchase a Dodge Challenger for his mother and a Mercedes for himself.

Scott, 15, was sporting an ankle monitor at the time of the robbery and called his mother to inform her about the offense. He told officers that he heard Sargeant say “one for grandma and one for me,” about the stolen guns.

All six were taken into custody on Monday after a two-month probe.

“Over the course of the last two months, the work of our detectives and crime scene technicians have led us to identify six individuals and their extensive history of similar crimes throughout South Florida,” Mascara stated.

“The investigation would not have been a success without the teamwork of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Delray Beach Police, and Fort Lauderdale Police to track and arrest this group of thieves.”
