Two middle school-aged boys admitted Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court that they stole rent money from a girl's house while they visited her in March.

The boys - one an E. Russell Hicks Middle School eighth-grader and the other a homeschool student, admitted to felony theft.

On March 9, the boys visited a girl who lived on South Potomac Street and stole an envelope that held $525 in cash earmarked for the girl's mother's rent, Washington County Deputy State's Attorney Steven Kessell said.

After police interviewed one of the youths, it was discovered that when the girl left the room where the envelope was, one of the boys took it, he said. The boys then went to a house, where they decided to spend $200 on marijuana and split the rest of the money between them, Kessell said.
