BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore County Police have arrested two more teenage girls they say not only admitted to carjacking a pregnant teacher, but also a whole slew of other robberies.
Authorities say a series of lies is how four teenage girls, all now in custody, landed themselves in hot water.
The investigation unfolded late last week when police were called to Villa Cresta Elementary School in Parkville after a pregnant teacher claimed she was carjacked and attacked on school grounds by a group of teenage girls.
Nearby neighbors have been floored.
“I thought this was a very safe neighborhood,” one resident said.
By the weekend, police arrested two of the suspects, including 16-year-old Tyana Holmes who was charged as an adult for the crime.
The arrests quickly led to tips and the arrests of the remaining two teen suspects.
Authorities say their investigation revealed the carjacking at Villa Cresta Elementary was just the tip of the iceberg.
“These girls are responsible for additional incidents in Baltimore City, such as purse snatching, robberies, car jackings”
Police say in total that the group, which is all between the ages of 14 and 16, stole four cars — including the one used to commit the crime at Villa Cresta. That car is a Ford Fusion that was reported stolen from Gardenville Elementary School and then dumped off at Hope Academy in the city.
In each case, authorities say the teen girls lied their way into the schools to get access to purses and keys.
“Police say a similar crime was prevented from occurring here at Pleasant Plains Elementary School. Authorities say the girls tried to con their way in by saying they were here to visit a relative. School officials kicking them off school grounds.”
Neighbors are breathing a sigh of relief following the arrests.
“I’m glad that the staff there noticed and you know eliminated the problem before anything happened.”
Police say once the girls were arrested, all four confessed to the crimes in the county and city.
The teacher and her baby weren’t seriously injured, but police say she did later go to the hospital as a precaution.
