Children take golf cart for joyride at Everglades High

MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - Surveillance cameras at Everglades High School captured eight to nine children taking out a golf cart for a joyride, more than a week ago.

Police said the children broke into the school on Sunday, Feb. 26. Officials said they recklessly rode around.

“They went into the high school, found a golf cart and took it on a joyride,” said Miramar Police spokeswoman Tania Rues. “Some of them are hanging off the golf cart.”

Without enough seats for each of them, the children hung off the cart as they rode around at speeds that might have come close to the maximum 12 mph. One even rode on the roof of the cart.

The driver tried threading the needle between columns and crashed into a wall, causing extensive damage to the cart and the wall.

At one point, one of the young riders can be seen falling off the back of the cart. The other children stop to help him up, then drive off without him.

“We’re asking anyone who may recognize these teens, please call CrimeStoppers,” said Rues.

If you have any information on this incident, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
