Cops: Kids at court-ordered school steal counselor's car and escape

Two students at a school for adjudicated delinquents stole their counselor's car keys early this morning and then stole his car, according to state police.

Around 2:14 a.m., the two teens from Philadelphia, who were court-ordered to the Glen Mills School in Thornbury Township for unknown reasons, stole their counselor's car keys from his gym bag while he was doing bed checks, police said.

The teens then managed to escape the facility unnoticed, locate the counselor's 2003 gold Toyota Coralla and drive away in it, according to state police.

A state police spokeswoman did not immediately return a call for comment, nor did a representative of the Glen Mills School. At the time the state police press release was issued this morning, the juveniles remained on the loose.

According to the school's website, it is a residential school for 15-to-18-year-old boys who have been ordered there by the courts and it's is located on 800 acres in Delaware County.
