Florida teenager arrested after using her parents’ debit card to try to have them killed

Sgt. Fred Jones from the Lake County Sheriff's Office said investigators are trying to figure out a motive.

Financial records showed that Hatcher, an Umatilla High School student, recently used her parents' stolen debit card to withdraw $500 from an ATM and send $926.40 to someone on PayPal.

An incident report prepared by the Tavares High school resource deputy said the student who tipped her off to the plot told her the girl who accepted the $400 received a text from the suspect that "she was not mad that she took the money but did not carry out the request, she just wants it taken care of".

Hatcher was transferred Tuesday morning from the Lake County Jail to the juvenile jail in Ocala.

A Mastercard chip-based credit card is posed for a photo in Gelsenkirchen, Germany on November 18, 2009.

Police added a witness saw the teenager handing over a large sum of money to her friend and then asking her to find an assassin.

Hatcher is scheduled to appear in a Lake County courtroom on October 3.

Police said Hatcher's mother discovered that her debit card was missing from her locked wallet inside her home.

Hatcher then attempted the plot again.

However, when the friend did not have the parents killed, the teen allegedly gave $900 to a male to do the job, according to the affidavit.

She was arrested by the Umatilla Police Department after the tip off. "When it comes to something like that I can not imagine the shock you would be in as a parent knowing that this is my daughter-what my daughter meant to do", he added.

According to the report, Hatcher's parents are pressing criminal charges against their daughter. "When it comes to something like that I can not imagine the shock you would be in as a parent knowing that this is my daughter ... what my daughter meant to do". They said she also bought some cocaine.

"The parents are good people, outstanding citizens".
