A Texas mother has been arrested after she impersonated her 13-year-old daughter and attended her classes for a whole day.
Casey Garcia, 30, filmed videos of herself getting dressed like a 7th grader and walking into the building of a San Elizario Independent School District campus, claiming she did it to test the security of the school.
To pass as her 13-year-old daughter, Garcia dyed her hair and wore an outfit similar to what her child would wear.
She then shared the clip onto YouTube and TikTok, in which viewers can see her passing through halls, mixing with faculty, and even attending lectures.
In the footage, the 30-year-old says: âDo I look like a seventh-grader? âNo?â Cool, awesome.â
It wasnât until the mumâs final class that a teacher realised that she wasnât who she was claiming to be.
As a result, Garcia was arrested for criminal trespassing, interfering with government records, and an unrelated traffic offense. She was then released on a $7,808 bond.
Later on, the mum released a video explaining why she decided to trespass on school grounds and impersonate a teenager.
She said: “I didnât do this ruffle any feathers, I didnât do this to out the school, because I was never going to say what school district or school it was, they put that out there themselves. We need better security at our schools, this is what I tried to prove, and I donât mean to be curt but I kind of feel like I proved it. I think the deal-breaker for me was actually walking in and posing as a seventh-grader. I mean, Iâm no spring chicken, but it wasnât hard and I made it to all seven periods.”
The mum also alleged that the schoolâs staff seemed to be more concerned about her carrying a phone the whole time, rather than the fact she managed to get away with impersonating a student.
âIt was, âhey, put your phone away.â I was not a name, I was not a person, I was âhey put your phone awayâ,â she recalled.
