Maryland Teens Pretended to Be Parents Looking to Enroll Their Children
Last week, the Maryland law enforcement officials arrested 16-year-old Tyana Keyshawn Holmes and her 14-year-old friend and charged both with grand theft auto and robbery. According to court documents, Holmes will be charged as an adult, while her 14-year-old friend will appear before the juvenile court.
Based on the suspect’s confession, Holmes and three of her teenage friends drove to the Parkville Villa Cresta Elementary School on Friday and approached one of the teachers who was heading to the parking lot.
Pretending to be a parent interested in enrolling her child in school, Holmes distracted the teacher, who is also pregnant, long enough for one of her friends to knock the smartphone out of her hand.
According to the victim’s testimony, after one of the teens grabbed her phone, she started running towards the building but tripped and fell. While Tyana and her friend picked up the pregnant teacher’s purse, two of her accomplices drove off in her 2013 Kia Sportage.
Two of the Maryland teens, Kyana, and her friend were taken into custody several hours after the incident. The authorities are still looking for the two teens who stole the pregnant teacher’s car.
At the moment, the law enforcement officials have yet no leads on the vehicle’s whereabouts. The teacher was not injured during the mugging but was transported to the hospital as a sign of precaution.
If found guilty, Tyana might spend the next decades behind bars.
