Police: Two Florida 13-year-old boys arrested for carjacking teacher

Two Florida juveniles were taken into custody for reportedly carjacking a teacher outside of their elementary school.

Authorities revealed that the 13-year-old boys were charged this week in connection with the September 25th vehicle theft at Biscayne Gardens Elementary School in Miami, according to news station WPLG. The identities of both students have been withheld due to their status as minors.

The first student allegedly held teacher Flora Martinez, 59, at gunpoint in the school parking lot and ordered her to turn over her car keys.

While Martinez ran for assistance, the second teen got into the driver’s seat of her car.

The two tried to make a quick getaway in their teacher’s car, but crashed into a curb in the parking lot.

Both teens fled on foot and weren’t busted until Martinez identified one of them in a lineup.

On Tuesday, the students made their first bond court appearance where the judge ruled they attend class under off-site supervised detention.

“You can’t go near the teacher and you can’t go on the school property,” the judge told the teens.
