Teens Arrested for Robbing Motorists Stuck in Snow
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Three teens accused of robbing motorists stuck in the snow have been caught after you guessed it they got stuck in the snow themselves.
Prosecutors announced robbery and armed criminal action charges Friday against 18-year-old Darion O. Page of Kansas City, a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old.
The Kansas City Star reported that police found the teens stuck in a snowdrift early Thursday morning.
The victims' credit cards were among the items found in their vehicle.
Court documents say the 17-year-old denied participating in the robberies and told police that all he did was drive.
The documents say Page admitted being present, but he blamed the holdups on the 16-year-old. The Star says that teen declined to make a statement.
