Utah Teen Allegedly Takes Mom's Car, Robs Two Banks At Drive-Through Window

This kid needs to be grounded.

A 16-year-old Utah teenager, who lives in Orem, allegedly took his mother's car and robbed two banks Saturday at the drive-through windows -- in just 20 minutes, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Sgt. Craig Martinez told the paper that authorities were able to get a good description of the suspect after allegedly robbing the Central Bank on State Street at noon, before hitting the First Credit Union on Main Street shortly after.

The teen, whose name has not been released, "never brandished a weapon but made inferences that he had a gun," Martinez told the Daily Herald.

Police said the suspect passed a note to tellers in a canister, before making off with the loot.

The Daily Herald reported that it was the first time he was aware of when someone had attempted to rob a Utah bank from the drive-through window, and that all of the stolen cash was recovered.

KSL reported that the teen's mother's blue toyota Corolla was located not far from the second bank, and the boy was picked up not far away. Police recovered a BB gun at another location that may have been used in the crimes.

The child's mother, at work when the crime supposedly occurred, was "definitely surprised," police told the TV station.
