Teens Take Happy Snaps In Police Paddy Wagon After Being Arrested For 500km Joyride

Three young girls taken into police custody after going on a 500km joyride in a relative's four-wheel drive didn't seem too phased about being arrested, seen documenting it on Snapchat.

The 15-year-old driver and her mates, aged 12 and 13, were en route from Coomera on the Gold Coast to Sydney, but the road trip ended at a servo in Taree on Monday afternoon after police noticed the vehicle which had been reported stolen earlier that day.

The driver won't be charged but cautioned under the Youth Offender's Act.

Speaking to Seven News, one of the girls' relatives said she was shocked the trio wen unnoticed for so long.

"What's more alarming to me is not just that the car was stolen, it's that they weren't stopped," she said.

The incident comes less than a month after a similar case involving a 12-year-old boy, who drove 1300km solo across NSW on his way to Perth.
