Montgomery County Teen Said That the Victim Was an Easy Target
Susan Maria Mize, a 17-year-old Springs teen, was taken into custody and charged with one count of aggravated robbery after she allegedly orchestrated the carjacking of a friend’s car.
According to the authorities, on Friday night, Mize planned to go on a drive with some of her friends. Before setting out, the Montgomery County teen met with two of her friends, a 15-year-old boy, and a 16-year-old boy and asked them if they wanted to earn $150.
The teens agreed, and Mize convinced them to stage a carjacking. After driving to Creekside Park, the 15-year-old, who was donning a ski mask, went to the car and threatened one of Mize’s male friends with an object that looked like a gun.
The masked robber ordered the victim get into the backseat, where the other teen was waiting with a knife in his hands. Apparently, both teens tied the victim using Susan’s shoelaces and stole his wallet.
During the heist, the victim was punched several times by the suspects. After kidnapping the teen, Mize and her friends drove the nearest HEB store, where they’ve demanded the victim to withdraw an unspecified sum of money from the ATM.
Since he did not have enough money in his account, the victim told his kidnappers that he has more money in his house. Agreeing to drive him home, the Montgomery County teen and her friends awaited inside the car while the victim went inside the house to get more money from his parents.
According to the authorities, the teen told his parents about the incident who, in turn, called the authorities. The suspects drove off and attempted to escape in the woods, but were captured by the Sheriff’s deputies.
