Detroit Police said that a 12-year-old boy is accused of breaking into a Bank of America in Southfield early Friday.

Police said that the boy was riding his on Greenfield Road and used a brick to break the door of the bank.
Bank security personnel could see the boy on video surveillance walking near the bank around 3:00 am and called police.
Police said the boy broke in and took some cash from the drawers. He also took a package of gum.

The boy first told police he was eight-years-old, but gave police a date of birth that made him nine-years-old. Police then found that he was twelve-years-old.

The child also asked police to give him his snacks back. He had brought along some chocolate milk to the bank.
The boy was arrested at the Southfield Police Department and was later handed over to his mother.
No charges have been filed.

The child will undergo a mental health examination.
“We have security measures in place and take any attempted theft of our branches seriously. This is an unfortunate incident and we are cooperating with the local police,” Diane J. Wagner, the Vice President of media relations of Bank of America, said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
