Three teens are in custody after allegedly stealing an Inkster woman’s car on Monday morning.

Three teens are in custody after allegedly stealing an Inkster woman’s car on Monday morning.

It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the single mother, Angel Daniels, ever since three teens took off in her 2011 Kia Forte on Monday morning. It all happened while she was picking up her sick six-year-old daughter from Inkster Prep academy.

“I went in there not even three minutes later I come out with my daughter and my car [was] gone. I thought I parked down the street. I’m like, okay, did I park somewhere else,” Angel recalled.

In that short amount of time, the thieves were able to take off, going on a nice little joy ride across town.

“They don’t care at all cause they didn’t purchase it. I worked hard for my car and I just paid it off,” Angel explained.

Inkster police wasted no time, locating the vehicle before a short pursuit takes place. It all ended with a pit maneuver, before the teens were taken into custody. Angel now has to foot the bill for damage to her vehicle.

“You deserve the consequences. I mean, that’s just life, whether you’re a teenager or not,” Angel insisted.

She has a message for those who may find themselves in a similar time crunch.

“No matter what the situation is, no matter what’s going on, take your keys out your car. Lock you car,” Angel added.

All three teens are now facing charges. Repairs are being made to fix the damage they caused. If you want to help, you can click the following link.
