VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Reuters) - Three boys, all under the age of 15, are being investigated for a string of bank robberies in the Vancouver area over the past month and half, police said on Monday.

The boys, who range in age from 13 to 14, were arrested on Saturday in connection with two robberies in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey and may be linked to seven hold-ups in the area, police said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said none of the boys is believed to have a previous criminal record. "They're off to a heck of a start," a police spokesman said.

Two of the boys have been released into their parents' custody, and none can be publicly identified because of their young age.

No weapons were produced in the bank robberies.

This is where the young offenders act should not apply.l These kids will not do any time,they will get probation and thats it,and when they turn 18 there record will be wiped clean.

Ok I'm a being a bit of a hypocrite  here, the young offenders act saved my ass when I was a kid. But 7 bank hold up's these kids are way to bold and I see a lovely future someday behind bars for them.

Sittin back drinkin beer watchin the world take it's course.

That brings up a good point Isis.  Does that mean that they had   really bad security cameras in the banks?  No good leads?  Certainly the  parent's of these children  were suspisous of where they got all this money.

Maybe the boys were robbing banks to impress girls?

I have to agree here.  If a parent is with their child (and I'm being realistic I don't mean 24/7 but I do mean most of the time) then this kind of thing could be prevented.  The parents are probably criminals too if the truth be told.  That's just my opinion.  I think parents play a massive role in their children's lives and all too often parents give a child too much freedom once they hit a certain age.  Sometimes I truly belive parents think that their job is over once their child hits the age of about 11 or so and the teen years are when a parent is needed most.  I have two teens I speak from experience.   thumbsup.gif

Did you realize that was a stupid idea because of the morals instilled in you by the adults who raised you?
