ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Three teens were charged with attempted burglary after authorities say they tried to open the door of a parked car while an undercover St. Petersburg police detective sat inside.

The detective was watching an area because officers received reports that teens were trying to open parked car doors. The detective watched the teens try other doors.

Apparently unaware he was inside, the teens tried the detective's door last.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the teens, girls ages 13 and 15 and a 14-year-old boy, were arrested. All three were charged with possession of burglary tools and burglary on a vehicle.
