Teens Accused Of Luring Victims On Dating Site And Stealing Their Cars

Suspects used Plenty of Fish to "catfish" their victims. 

There's plenty of fish in the sea...Two teens are suspected of casting a wide net on the dating app Plenty of Fish, to lure victims and steal their cars. According to WGHP, two teen girls in Guilford County, North Carolina used the popular dating site to "catfish" unsuspecting men.

The suspects were arrested on Friday for putting together the scheme. The girls, ages 15 and 16, reportedly used Plenty of Fish to pretend they were older to attract men. They would ask the male victims to pick them up and take them home. While the men were distracted doing something, the teens would steal their cars.

Authorities believe the two girls are behind at least four car thefts since April. 

The teens were finally caught after being spotted in a stolen car. The older teen faces adult charges of felony larceny of a motor vehicle, felony possession of a stolen motor vehicle, and two counts of felony conspiracy. The younger teen will face juvenile counts of the same charges.
