KANSAS CITY, Mo.- Three teens accused of robbing motorists stuck in the snow have been caught after - you guessed it - they got stuck in the snow themselves.
Prosecutors announced robbery and armed criminal action charges Friday against 18-year-old Darion O. Page of Kansas City, a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old.
The Kansas City Star reported that police found the teens stuck in a snowdrift early Thursday morning.
The victims' credit cards were among the items found in their vehicle.
Court documents say the 17-year-old denied participating in the robberies and told police that all he did was drive.
The documents say Page admitted being present, but he blamed the holdups on the 16-year-old. The Star says that teen declined to make a statement.
