Somerfield, Florida (AP) – A 14-year-old girl caused a stir at a North Florida middle school when she handed out more than $10,000 accused of stealing from her grandmother, officials say.
Marion County Representatives said they responded to Lake Ware Prep in Summerfield Thursday after reports that a student was giving classmates hundreds of dollars each.
Representatives say school officials searched the girl’s bag and found about $2,500.
Investigators later determined that the girl broke into her grandmother’s safe house and stole about $13,500.
Officials did not say why the girl allegedly received the money or why it was given to her classmates.
