MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police say teamwork between officers and members of the Milwaukee Police Department’s “Robbery Task Force” led to the quick arrest of six teenagers believed responsible for two carjackings that happened on Milwaukee’s south side.

Police say the carjackings happened just before 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 4th near 30th and Burnham.

Several suspects inside a Dodge Caravan pulled up to two victims — one driving a Ford Escape and one driving a GMC Terrain, and demanded their cars at gunpoint.

The suspects then fled the scene in the vehicles they just obtained.

Around 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, the Ford Escape was spotted by officers near 26th and Center Street — and a pursuit ensued.

Police say the driver of the Escape eventually lost control of the vehicle and crashed. A 12-year-old boy, a 13-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy were taken into custody.

Around the same time, police say the Terrain was spotted in the same area — and a 12-year-old boy, a 15-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were arrested.

MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for charges.

    If these kids are released to the parents, why not charge the parents if they get caught again???? If the parents are responsible enough to come and get the kids when they get in trouble, they should be responsible if their child gets in trouble. Who had the gun?? why should these kids ever be let out. I’m really sick and tired when will the black community be sick and tired?????

    Every honest citizen should get certified training, a CCW permit and a handheld wireless device that makes a loud bang. Take control of your own safety.

    GOOD JOB MPD!!! something i’ve been waiting to hear. Would love for you to crack down on more of these. Besides theft, its very dangerous for our community that these underage Kids are driving around recklessly. I applaud The Milwaukee Police dept.

    This is very disturbing knowing the age of these criminals, they must be incarcerated in a disciplinary camp until such an age where they are able to work themselves to the bone and pay back society for their misdeeds otherwise they will grow up to become killers. It is very sad blacks have caved into the liberal democratic agenda and keep voting for their own demise.

    Why were these little brats not in school where they belong at 12 years old? And where were the parents? Do they not make sure their kids get to school?

    I pay my taxes for what?? Cops are stuck. Courts just coddle the little bastards. Every race has their lowlifes. Why do blacks have so many more? I wish one of these punks would try to steal my truck. What little bit of literacy they have they can compute the NRA decals on back window could be bad for them. I won’t hit their knees.
