Four Aussie Kids Steal Nissan Patrol For 900 Km Road Trip

Four children aged between 10 and 14 years old in Australia went on a 930 km (578 mile) joyride in a 2004 Nissan Patrol loaded with fishing rods.

9 News reports that a 14-year-old boy, two 13-year-old boys, and a 10-year-old girl left a home on Saturday night in the Queensland city of Rockhampton. The children stopped to refuel in the suburb of Banana the following morning and continued their journey across the state border into New South Wales and hit the town of Glen Innes by Sunday afternoon.

Later that night, a public appeal to help find the children saw authorities catch up to them in the town of Grafton.

According to local Inspector Darren Williams, charges will likely be filed against the children once police have conducted interviews.

“It’s a pretty big journey. It’s a long way for a person to do it, but I suppose a couple cans of Red Bull and you’re likely to do anything,” Williams said. “I couldn’t imagine on person actually driving all that way in two days. They’ve locked themselves in the car and police have had to use a baton to get into the car to arrest them.”

Local media reports that the children took fishing rods and cash on their roadtrip and that one of the children left a handwritten note to his family before they left.

All four children were taken to the Grafton Police Station where one was later released into the care of a family member. The three other children involved were taken into care of Family and Community Services.
