(WCNC) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A CMS teacher says an 11-year-old student stole her car and when she got it back it was destroyed — scratches, dents, gum on the seat — and dozens of cigarette butts on the floor.
If that damage isn't bad enough, she says it's what's missing from her car that has her family even more heartbroken.

Sixth grade teacher Adrienne Friedrichs says the child walked out into the school parking lot with her stolen keys and used the unlocking sound to find her car.
"It's devastated our family. The kids are scared for me to go back to work. My son can't play ball tomorrow, he just got over open heart surgery from last year, so this is a big deal," said the single mother Friedrichs.
