A pair of teenagers spent time behind bars this morning for allegedly stealing a vehicle in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Police arrested two juveniles, a 12 year old male and female, in the 500 block of South Prairie at 11:45 p.m. last night.

Law enforcement learned of the situation after a complainant called, stating her 12 year old daughter left with another individual in a blue Malibu and was unaware where they were heading.

Reports claim the juveniles took the keys while they were there to use the restroom.

The teenagers were arrested for theft over $500 and stealing a vehicle. They have been released into the custody of their parents.
