A 14-year-old boy, who was supposed to be locked up in a detention centre for previous crimes, was found joyriding a stolen car in Toulouse last night.

The boy, who had turned 14 just a couple of weeks ago, was found recklessly driving a Peugeot 205 in the Empalot area of Toulouse yesterday evening.

The owner of the car had just discovered his apartment had been broken into, and his car keys stolen.

But when the police took the minor to the police station, they discovered he was already in trouble with the authorities for previous crimes, and was supposed to be staying in a high-security education centre.

The boy had a history of escaping from the authorities - he was sent to the centre originally for running away just before a hearing in the Youth Court for a crime committed earlier in the year.
