LUCIE, Fla. — Two teenage boys are in big trouble after police said that they tried to rob a South Florida police station. “You know what, this is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen,” Port St. Lucie Police spokesman Rob Vega said.Vega told WPBF News 25 that the two boys, ages 12 and 14, walked into the lobby of a regional station around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and demanded money from an aide behind the glass enclosure.

Vega said the 12-year-old hid one hand under his jacket as if he had a gun. Another aide ran into the back screaming for help.

Within minutes, a half dozen officers, some with guns drawn, burst into the lobby and arrested the boys.

“In all my time here, whoever would have thought that someone would come to a police department and attempt to rob it. It’s unbelievable. It’s lucky that they’re only going to jail and not to the morgue,” Vega told WPBF.

Both boys have been charged with attempted armed robbery. The 14-year-old was also charged with violating his probation. MORE>>>
