11-Year-Old Girl Steals $10,000, Hails Cab Halfway Across Country

An 11-year-old girl stole thousands of dollars from her grandma and then told a cab driver to take her halfway across the country so she could meet a 16-year-old boy she'd been chatting with online.

Alexis Waller is safe and sound and will not face any charges after her pre-teen hijinks, according to KARK.

Authorities said Waller stole $10,000 from her grandmother's sock drawer in Bryant, Arkansas. Then she hitched a ride with a stranger to Little Rock where she called a cab.

Waller told the cab driver to take her to Jacksonville, Florida.

"I said I need to go to Jacksonville, Florida," Waller told KARK. "He's like, 'do you have money' and I'm like, 'yes.'"

The total cost of her trip would have been $1,300.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Waller got about 500 miles toward her destination, until cops got in touch with the cabbie, who told them the pair were in the Atlanta suburbs.

Her parents said they are upset with their daughter, but also very glad to have her home.

Waller might be a troublemaker, but her parents could have it much worse.
