The kids were not so dumb as to try to rob a clearly-marked patrol car. Like the carjackers who tried to take a car away from armed US Marshals two years ago, these thieves thought that the unmarked car was privately owned.
A detective in an unmarked car parked in the area in response to previous reports of car break-ins. The detective sat quietly in his car and watched. Three suspects, aged 13, 14, and 15, arrived at about 6 PM and began testing car doors, seeing if any were unlocked. They eventually worked their way down the street to the occupied police car. When they tried to open it, the officer arrested them.
