A pair of underage Florida youths were arrested after attempting to steal a pizza delivery car but didn’t get very far.

According to the Miami Herald, cops busted Rojelio Sebastian, 14, and Miguel Garcia, 12, last Friday attempting to steal a Domino’s delivery man’s car but failed miserably after discovering the car was a stick shift.

The delivery driver, Issac Javier Ortez, left the vehicle running while delivering a pizza to Garcia’s neighbor.

Ortez said when he arrived to give the resident their pizza they denied they ordered one.

The driver said that’s when he heard the car’s engine revving and witnessed the two boys covering their faces and attempting to flee in the vehicle.

“They came out and said we didn’t order any pizza, that’s when I heard my car in the driveway making a big noise,” Ortez told NBC 2.

Ortez said the boys apparently didn’t know how to operate manual transmissions and were only able to reverse the car before fleeing the scene on foot.

“When they go back to get the first gear, they cannot drive,” the pizza delivery driver said.

Lee County Sheriff’s deputies later found the two juvenile delinquents walking on railroad tracks.

Ortez was only able to identify one the young suspects.

“They look like little kids, I say they look like babies,” Ortez added.

Cops also found a pipe on Garcia and charged him with “possession of drug paraphilia.”

The two boys were both charged with “grand theft auto and possession of burglary tools.”

Garcia had previously attempted to steal a car.

Police cited the youth in November after he was busted driving his mother’s car without a license and with no headlights on.
