Two middle school students stole a teacher’s SUV and managed to get 70 miles before one of their parents tracked them via iPad software, according to police in Middle Tennessee.

It happened around 3pm on Wednesday, June 12, and involved two 12-year-old boys, according to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

“The two seventh graders saw that the teacher had left the key to her 2024 Honda CRV on her desk and took it,” police said in a news release.

“They were seen driving out of the parking lot (of Two Rivers Middle School) at 2.50pm.”

Investigators say the vehicle was located with the help of “parents of one of the young men”, who tracked their son’s iPad to the Bucksnort community.

A Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper located the boys along westbound Interstate 40, at Exit 152. The exit is about a 70-mile drive southwest from Nashville.

The boys had pulled over “just off the exit” when a state trooper took them into custody, officials said.

Details of where the boys were headed or why they got off at the exit were not revealed.

They are being charged as juveniles and the case will be handled in Davidson County Juvenile Court, police said. The charges were not released.

Two Rivers Middle School is in northeast Nashville and has an enrollment of just under 400 students in grades 5 through 8, according to usnews.com. – The Charlotte Observer/Tribune News Service
