A Texas teenager was arrested after authorities discovered she masterminded a carjacking incident she claimed she and a friend were victims of.
Fox News reports that Susan Mize staged the gunpoint carjacking of a boyfriend by two other friends. The story ultimately fell apart when Sheriff’s Office quizzed her on details of the incident.
He said deputies learned that Susan had set up her friend Preston Barry, 20, also of Spring, to be robbed by two juvenile males. They arrested one of the juveniles, a 16-year-old boy, and issued an arrrest warrant for the other, a 15-year-old boy.
Barry had told deputies that he and Susan had been carjacked by the two juveniles, one of whom had a gun and was wearing a mask.
Spencer said that during the ordeal, Barry was robbed of his wallet, struck numerous times and forced to withdraw money from an ATM machine. In the car, he was also tied up with Susan’s shoelaces.
At one point the two juveniles dropped Susan off at her house and then drove with Barry to his house.
Mize is currently being held on $75,000 bond and being charged with aggravated robbery.
