A 10-year-old boy from Philadelphia is facing criminal charges after stealing a delivery van for a little joyride.
The unnamed boy saw an unmanned delivery van parked on the street last Sunday afternoon. When the boy saw the car keys dangling from the back door, he immediately grabbed it and started the car.
In an amazing scene that was caught on video, the boy proceeded to plow through five parked cars. When the boy attempted to flee from the scene of the crime, a pedestrian held him back and waited for the police.
“Looking out the window, saw a white van coming around the corner and it was just hitting everything as it was coming up the street,” a storeowner Arnett Woodall recounted to WPVI-TV. “Once it hit the last car and stopped, [I] seen the little guy jump out the car and run off.”
“He said his mom has him stealing, him and his nephew stealing things to support a drug habit,” Woodall added. “That was the story.”
The boy is currently facing charges of criminal mischief, handling stolen property, and unauthorized use of an vehicle.
