13 year old drives away with father’s Mercedes for a road trip
An argument with adoptive parents and retaliation at them confiscating his mobile phone, has resulted in a 13 year old boy stealing his father’s Mercedes Benz and driving 1000 kms across Europe.
Surprisingly, the troubled teenager managed to cross two international borders, top up his petrol tank en-route, without attracting any attention. It was only close to the Polish border than German police managed to nab him. The youngster apparently missed his biological sister and was heading home to meet her, following arguments with his adoptive parents, reports BBC.
According to reports, it was the vehicle that was tracked and not the fact that it was an under-aged boy at its wheels that resulted in his capture. The youngster was completely confident behind the wheels of this high powered Mercedes and managed to traverse a reasonable amount of distance before he was tracked and stopped near Moisburg in Northern Germany. The 13 year old has now realized his error, and apologized to his adopted parents. The Mercedes Benz too is back home safe in Italy.
