You'll Shoot Your Eye Out: Cops Say Bratty Kid Tried Stealing BB Gun From Elmhurst Kmart

Due to his tender age, the boy was released to his father without being charged, police said.

A boy caught trying to steal a BB gun from the Elmhurst Kmart gave a security guard a hard time and then lied to the cops, police said.

Despite all of this bad behavior, the Elmhurst police said they chose not to charge the 12-year-old with anything due to his age.

The kid started acting up about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Officers were sent to the Route 83 superstore to investigate a report of a child "stuffing a BB gun into his jacket," police said.

"He was with several other young kids and when loss prevention asked (the youth) to come to him, (the boy) immediately began giving him a problem," police said.

"He was brought to the station and was untruthful with officers," police said. "His father picked him up and due to his age he was released without charges."

Released to his parents......what does that teach him? I don't know the exact circumstances however there should be some kind of consequence for stealing.

When I was young I stole alot of things, shot out street lights with my wrist rocket, got caught stealing at white hen once, took money from ladies purses when they weren't looking, and drove a car when I was 12 around the neighborhood and I turned out pretty good and law abiding now.
