SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) – A 10-year-old boy is no longer in the driver’s seat after Marin County deputies nabbed him driving a stolen reform school van.
Sheriff’s Lt. Barry Heying says the 4-foot-10-inch boy and his 14-year-old passenger were stopped near Sausalito early Sunday.
Heying told the Marin Independent Journal the boys fled St. Vincent’s School for Boys in San Rafael by stealing the van’s keys from a school staff office.
He says the boys gained access to the office by removing a window pane and then replacing it.
School staff spotted the van leaving the campus and notified authorities.
The boys were arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and taken to Marin County Juvenile Hall.
St. Vincent’s is a 60-bed residential school for troubled boys ages 7 to 19 run by Catholic Charities CYO.
