Teens Do $800K in Damages After Breaking Into Houston Dealership and Smashing Multiple Vehicles


Teenagers have been known to do some pretty stupid stuff, but this may have set the bar a little higher.

Police say four teens broke into a Houston CarMax dealership, just off I-45, on Sunday night and proceeded to cause at least $800,000 in damage to some pretty nice cars, including two Red Corvettes: a C7 Z06 and a C7 Grand Sport.

Fortunately, dealership security caught wind of the crazy antics, and police were able to respond in time to nab two of the suspects on site, then track down two more at their homes nearby.

Among the other cars damaged during the spree were a green Dodge Challenger Scat Pack, a white Jaguar XE, a fifth-generation Ford Mustang, and a 987-generation Porsche Cayman or Boxster.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman told reporters that in his 33-year career, he had never seen so much damage done “with blatant disregard to vehicles and property.”

The teens – two 14-year-olds and two 16-year-olds – walked onto the dealership lot and somehow got the keys to several vehicles. Apparently they couldn’t actually figure out how to get the cars off the lot, but in the process of driving around the facility, they crashed into several other vehicles.

The teens have been charged with first-degree felony criminal mischief, taken to Harris County Juvenile Detention Center, and then released into the custody of their parents.

We wonder what the judicial system will do to these kids. We would assume and hope they are responsible for paying to fix the cars, so an $800,000 bill broken into four chunks is going to take a lifetime to pay back. If you wonder why your car insurance is so high, look no further than these knuckleheads. We would assume that CarMax will get reimbursed by its insurance company for the damage, and this is one case where we don’t really think it’s fair for the insurer to get stuck with this $800,000 bill.

  1. These vandals need to be charged as adults with serious jail time. Regardless of repair, these vehicles now have a stain on their CarFax which will have a major adverse effect on their valuations.
