You might be tempted to say that news of two 6-year-olds and one 3-year-old burglarizing the neighbor’s home is evidence that kids are growing up too fast. But check out this list of stolen items:
A Candyland game, a box of Little Debbie’s Fudge Rounds, a couple of hammers and a jar of vegetables. Vegetables! How cute is that?
Actually, not very.
The three Covington, La., young’uns also took a pack of cigarettes and some money. One of the 6-year-olds pulled a gun on a police officer, who had been called to the burglarized home. The boys were playing across the street from the scene of the crime and the officer went over to ask a few questions.
The weapon, which appeared to be a pistol, was actually a BB gun. But it doesn’t take a paranoid mom to think what could have happened had the kid waved it around at the cop.
Here’s the super sad part, though. The kids were being watched by their cousin, while their mother was off at a mandatory parenting class. Sounds like this would be the right time for a little intervention on the boys’ behalf, too.
