Cops: Teens were no trouble, now they're in it deep

They are four average teens, friends from Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor who had never been in serious trouble with the law.

But today, the 17-year-olds are facing felony charges as adults for a brazen bank robbery last month on the city's west side.

On Aug. 22, just a week before classes began at Pioneer, police say two of the teens walked into the Key Bank at 2207 W. Stadium Blvd.

One, wearing a green ski mask, walked up to the tellers and demanded at least $50,000 and access to the vault, according to police. The other teen, his face covered with a red bandanna, stood by the door holding a black semi-automatic handgun.

The pair escaped on foot. Police declined to describe the role of the other two teens but said at least three of them are facing felony charges as adults for armed bank robbery. They face a maximum of life in prison if convicted.

Within days of the robbery, one of the teens spent his share of the loot on jewelry at Briarwood Mall in Ann Arbor, according to one investigator.

The following Monday, three of the teens started their senior year at Pioneer. The fourth teen had transferred to a high school in Flint.

FBI Senior Agent Greg Stejskal said investigators received a tip late last week that led to the arrest of the students.

Police did not release the teens' names pending their arraignment, scheduled for today in Washtenaw County Trial Court in Ann Arbor. They may also face federal bank robbery charges.

"It's shocking. These kids are not troublemakers, they were not on anyone's radar," said Ann Arbor Police Lt. Chris Heatley. "They were average high school students."

Heatley said the apparent motive was money and police do not believe drugs were involved.

Well it was kind of obvious when he goes to a jewelry store in the mall and pays for a $4,000 diamond ring up front in cash.

Any 17 year old who is stupid enough to:

a) Rob a bank.
b) Within a week spend $4000 on jewelry...
c) At the local mall.
d) Then show up to high school or work wearing it.

...Deserves to be in jail.


(I just have this picture in my head of a kid behind the counter at McDonalds thinking he's all that - with finger bling the size of a super bowl ring and the complete Mr. T starter kit around his neck).

Let's shorten it to:

(a) Rob a bank = Deserves to be in jail. No need for b-d
