A 17-year-old Akins High School student is accused of swiping a teacher's keys and driving her vehicle without her permission, according to an affidavit.
On Nov. 28 police were called to Akins High School after a teacher at the school reported that her keys were taken from her desk and that her vehicle was stolen. When police arrived, the teacher informed police that she parked her vehicle in the teacher's parking lot and that she had not given anyone permission to take her vehicle.
Police reviewed the school's security camera footage and located the suspect in the teacher's parking lot wearing a white sweat top and a black bag. The suspect was also seen checking his surroundings before entering the teacher's vehicle.
Upon an officer's request, a representative with Austin Independent School District checked the school's parking lots and found that the teacher's vehicle had been moved to a different school parking lot.
After reviewing the camera video for the south school parking lot, an assistant principal was able to identify the suspect as one of their 12th-grade students.
The student was escorted to the school's office where he admitted that he had the teacher's keys and that he drove the vehicle to a different parking lot without her permission.
The 17-year-old has been charged with felony of unauthorized use of a vehicle with a bond set at $7,500. According to online records, he is not in custody as of Wednesday afternoon.
