Kids Break Into CarMax Dealer, Play Demolition Derby, Wreck 20 Cars, Cause $800,000 Damages!

More than 20 vehicles were damaged this past weekend when four juveniles broke into a Houston area CarMax parking lot and began playing real-life bumper cars.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the kids got their hands on the dealership keys and proceeded to break into multiple cars before crashing them into various other vehicles in the lot. In total, they wrecked over 20 cars, causing $800,000’s worth of damages.

After arriving on location, authorities gave chase and quickly managed to apprehend the kids: “All four juveniles were arrested and booked into the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center, charged with 1st degree felony criminal mischief,” stated Constable Mark Herman.

It was the dealership’s security company that called the police, after the kids were caught on cameras while breaking into the cars. Since all the felons were juveniles, their identities were not made public.

Any nice cars?

As a matter of fact, yes. Images courtesy of Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office reveal that a Corvette Z06, a red Porsche, a white Jaguar XE, a Mustang and a Scat Pack Challenger were among the victims. As you can see, some of them got off easier than others, like that Porsche. Then again, those $800,000 speak for themselves.

Hopefully those kids will end up learning a valuable lesson and won’t be revisiting this type of behavior in the future. As for the dealership, they might want to invest in better after-hours security.

    Glad they got caught, I hope they get a nice long stay locked up. When I was young we would never thought to go do some shit like this…

  • Mr. Viscous

    ok so what does the law say about who covers the damages?

    • BlackPegasus

      Good question. Depending on the state, the courts may try to assess the net worth and income of the defendant(s) to determine restitution amounts. I doubt the parents will be held responsible financially. Essentially, as juveniles they committed a crime that they knew would go unpunished.

    Carmax leaves the keys in lockboxes on the car windows. The kids must have found a way to open them.

  • WHEN I WAS A KID, A LOOOONG TIME AGO, A FRIEND AND ME USED TO GO TO THE CAR DEALERS TO LOOK AROUND. WE ONCE FOUND ONE UNLOCKED GOT IN TO LOOK AROUND, AN LTD COUNTRY SQUIRE, BEFORE LONG A COP CAR PULLS UP, GETS US OUT, FRISKED US AND ASKED WHAT WE WERE DOING, “WE’RE JUST LOOKING AROUND”. THE COP TOOK HIS FLASHLIGHT AND PEERED INSIDE AND SAW THAT THE HUBCAPS ETC. WERE ALL STILL THERE AND TOLD US TO BEAT IT.

    THE POINT OF THE STORY IS I’D NEVER CONSIDER DESTROYING THE CARS IN THE LOT. KIDS LIKE THIS ARE TROUBLE AND PROBABLY WONT LEARN MUCH FROM THE EXPERIENCE.

    I don’t see any hope for their future. The only takeaway they’ll get from this is to have other forms of illegal “fun” at others expense and not get caught.

    And who will pay for the damages?

  • Howfarr

    Just kill ’em, don’t need people like this in the gene pool
    Make future brats think twice..

      Agree with you. They will only become the garbages of the society. I see a very dark future for these kind of jerks: becoming drug dealers and eventually die on the street in gang shooting.

  • Ary Wisesa

    Just send those morons to work camp. The owners of the cars should pay some hitman to give them valuable lesson. One or two broken legs and arms will do. If the state can punish them appropriately, then hand them to the real executor: some mafia or yakuza. I’m sick with all these irresponsible acts and no punishment just because they’re teens.
