SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — A 12-year-old Michigan boy was caught red-handed allegedly trying to rob a Bank of America branch in suburban Detroit.

Police led the child out of the bank in Southfield in handcuffs early Friday morning.

Officials said he rode his bike to the scene and used it to smash in the front door just before 3 a.m.

The surveillance company said workers could see the child on video walking around the bank.

He’s accused of collecting rolled coins and miscellaneous cash from a teller’s drawer.

Police said when he was detained, the kid was very calm and more concerned about the snacks he had taken with him to the bank.
