Car thieves crash through gates Florida governor's mansion

Two men in a stolen car crashed through the gates of the Florida governor's mansion, cut across the grounds and exited by smashing through another gate, police said on Thursday.

Stolen Car
The men were fleeing after stealing the Ford Mustang at a fast food restaurant near the official residence of Governor Jeb Bush in Tallahassee and took a shortcut across the property, a Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman said.

Neither suspect was from Tallahassee. "My understanding is that they did not even know it was the governor's mansion," spokeswoman Kristen Perezluha said.

Governor Bush, brother of President George W. Bush, was not home when the incident occurred on Wednesday night. His wife, Columba, was inside the mansion but never was in any danger, Perezluha said.

Local police recognized the stolen vehicle and arrested two suspects aged 19 and 24 on car theft charges. State agents matched the car's paint to that on the damaged gates and probably will file additional charges against them, Perezluha said.
