Police in Minnesota had to deal with a very unusual car theft case the other day. The fact is that the offender turned out to be a 4-year-old boy Sebastian Swenson.
A smart kid stole his great-grandfather’s car keys and went to buy candy. And, by the way, he traveled more than 2 km almost without incident.
“If you can’t, but you really want to, then you can. » Apparently, 4-year-old Sebastian thought that or something like that when his mother didn’t allow him to eat sweets before breakfast.
After waiting for the adults to take care of their business, the little tomboy pushed her great-grandfather’s walker against the wall and took her car key from the hook.
After that, the child slipped into the car, confidently climbed into the seat, put the key in the ignition and pressed the gas. And I went… to the nearest gas station to buy some delicious treats.
And by the way, the gas station is not that close – almost 1.5 miles (that’s about 2.5 km). And almost all the time you have to drive on busy streets, and even part of the way on a four-lane highway. And it’s during rush hour!
By the way, many drivers traveling on the highway that morning noticed a large car moving in jerks at a speed of 10 to 15 miles per hour. However, it turned out that it was not at all without incident.
During his “candy” trip, Sebastian knocked over several mailboxes and broke the car’s bumper, catching a tree in a nearby lot. But, according to the police, these are just trifles and everything could have ended much worse.
