A teenager in Texas was the mastermind behind a scheme to carjack her father — just to get some cash out of him.

Authorities said two teen boys carjacked 16-year-old Susan Mize and her dad on Friday in their Nissan — holding them up at gunpoint and commanding them to drive home to give them money, the Montgomery County Police Reporter revealed.

Once at the home, the quick-thinking father went inside, locked the door and dialed 911, WTRV reported.

The two men released Mize and bolted in the vehicle before abandoning it and fleeing on foot into the woods.

One of them, a 16-year-old, was arrested and the other is still on the lam.

Deputies also took the teen girl into custody after discovering that she arranged the whole plot to steal from her father.

She was booked into the Montgomery County Jail, where she is in custody on $75,000 bond.

She is facing charges of aggravated robbery.
