The Umatilla teen is accused of stealing her parents' debit card and making two transactions: One for $503 and the other for $926.40, according to an arrest affidavit from the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

According to NYDN, a 17-year-old Florida teen stole her parent's debit card to get cash to hire someone to kill her parents.

In an interview that was recorded after, Hatcher apparently admitted she had stolen her parents' debit card and confirmed she did make the two transactions.

Her boyfriend also told a detective that he had seen the girl early Monday "at a known drug house where she advised him she wanted to kill her parents", the report said.

The act wasn't carried out by the first person, so Hatcher then reportedly gave $900 (£730) to an unnamed "black male" to kill her parents.

Neither plots were successful.

"The juvenile suspect was placed in custody and transported to the Lake County Jail where she was processed and turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice".

Hatcher also confessed to buying $100 (£81) worth of cocaine, according to documents.

Confirming that Hatcher's parents wanted to press charges, Jones told local station WOFL-TV, "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".

Alyssa Hatcher was arrested on Monday by the Umatilla Police Department.

Police said Hatcher's motive as to why she wanted her parents dead is still unclear."The parents are good people, outstanding citizens". "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".

"The parents did press charges", Sgt. Jones said. "This was just somebody, who for whatever reason, just didn't want her parents around", Jones said.
