Teen girl blames boredom for joyride

Police have been left shaking their heads after a 14-year old girl took her folks car for a spin.

The Sunshine West girl was stopped in Carlton on Princes Street near Drummond Street at 12:40am.

What was even more surprising for officers was her excuse - she blamed 'boredom' on her school holidays for the joyride, telling police she pinched the car so she could go hang out with friends in Carlton.

Authorities returned the teenager to her less than impressed family and intend on charging her on summons with unlicensed driving and other traffic offences.
