Cops nab 15 year-old driver

From: The News
A fifteen year-old and his two passengers are detained by police at the wheel of a car he bought for peanuts.

Police in the northern city of Slupsk are looking for the former owner of a 32-year-old Volkswagen after they stopped the car when being driven by a 15-year-old with two 10-year-old passengers.

The under-age driver said he had bought the car for 50 zl (around 12 euro).

He told police that after he’d bought the vehicle he took his small brother and his friend for a ride. According to observers, he had driven the car, “in a strange way but not dangerously,” and parked it correctly in a supermarket lot.

Police are now looking for the car’s original owner, who could face legal consequences for selling it to a minor.
