(Scroll down for video) A group of five silly teenagers were arrested for breaking into a car while a police officer was inside.

Three 17-year-olds and two 18-year-old men of Virginia, were arrested for breaking into an unmarked police vehicle while the officer was still inside.

The officer was parked on the block 5600 at Burnage Court in Chesterfield County, when a vehicle stopped behind the unmarked car.

Several teens got out of the vehicle and opened the officer’s car door. When they heard the officer calling for backup, they ran away.

The teens fled on foot, but officers apprehended them a short time later.

During an investigation, it was discovered that the suspects had entered a number of vehicles in the area and had stolen items, including cash and a firearm.

Alberto Lindsey Moore and Jonathan Starks, both 18, were charged with grand larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, resisting arrest and tampering with auto.

Starks faces an additional charge of assault and battery of a police officer.

The 17-year-olds, who were not named due to their age, also face a host of charges, including grand larceny, conspiracy to commit grand larceny, tampering with a vehicle and fleeing from law enforcement.

One 17-year-old was in possession of the stolen firearm. He will faces additional charges of a concealed weapon violation and possession of a firearm by a minor.
