SOUTHFIELD, Mich., July 12 (UPI) -- Police in Michigan said a young boy was being held for allegedly using his bicycle to shatter a window at a bank and take cash early Friday.

Southfield police said the boy, who initially gave his age as 8 but gave police a birth date that would make him 9, rode his bike to the Bank of America in Southfield around 3 a.m. Friday, and the bank's security company called police when cameras recorded him walking around the bank, WDIV-TV, Detroit, reported.

Police said the video cameras depicted the boy using his bicycle to shatter the front door and enter the bank, where he allegedly took some rolled coins and cash from a teller's drawer.

The boy's mother went to the Southfield Police Department, but officers refused to release the boy into her custody. She declined to comment to WDIV-TV.
