‘Doughnuts' on Scots grounds

A TEENAGER has been charged with several offences after allegedly taking his unregistered and uninsured car for a spin around the ovals at Scots PGC College.

Staff at the school rang the Warwick police station on Thursday afternoon to report someone hooning.

The 17-year-old allegedly did doughnuts on the school's oval and was hooning around the buildings and school grounds.

It did not take police long to locate the vehicle and the driver.

The teenage occupant was then charged with negligent driving of a motor vehicle, wilful damage to an educational institute, driving an unregistered vehicle and driving an uninsured vehicle.

The youth will appear in court later this month.

Police are also still investigating a drive-off without paying that occurred later that night.

The incident occurred at the Caltex Roadhouse Service

Station along the Cunningham Hwy.

 

Police are reviewing the CCTV footage of the thieves and are on the lookout for a green Nissan Patrol four-wheel drive.

The car was thought to have been stolen from Beaudesert.

Police believe the vehicle was heading towards Stanthorpe or Goondiwindi.
