And finally… boy racer

Police pulled over a stolen car only to find it was being driven by the owner’s runaway 10-year-old son, accompanied by his 11-year-old sister.

The young children decided to abscond after their mother confiscated their electronic devices and were caught hundreds of miles from their Florida home, police said.

The “high risk” traffic stop with an unexpected ending took place on a major highway in the middle of the night, the BBC reports.

The kids were handed back to their mother without any further police action.

“Our detectives did speak with their mother at length who was clearly doing her best to raise two young children and she was very receptive to the recommendations they provided in helping her get assistance,” the force said in a statement.
