four kids stealing a car and driving 1000 kilometers with it
A group of 4 kids, 3 boys (14, 13, 13), and 1 girl (10) have been spotted driving on Sunday.
They have managed to steal 82 litres (approximately 21 gallons) of gas, costing about 115 Australian Dollars before the police spotted them driving.
Before the trip, the kids have geared up with a few fishing rods and cash, so they went on their way after they stole one of their relative's car.
According to The Sun, they have driven from Rockhampton, Central Queensland to Grafton, New South Wales.
A local petrol station have reported their car to the police, and a cashier there gave them CCTV footage.
“They drove in like normal, you can see the bloke get out of the car and start filling it up.
He is really short. Look he barely even reaches the window.
Then he just sorted himself out, got back in the car and drove off.
No one else got out of the car but it looked like he was talking to someone else.”
The cashier reported to the police.
When the police identified the car, that was reported missing by the parents, they chased it for a while before the kids gave up.
Darren Williams, a New South Wales police inspector, said the children refused to get out of the car when the police approached them.
"When we got there, they wouldn’t open up."
It was later revealed that a 13-year-old boy was in the driver’s seat.
It was also later revealed that one of the kids has left a note for the parents before driving off.
