A 4-year-old Minnesota boy swiped his great-grandpa’s SUV and drove to a store to satisfy his candy craving, according to a report.
Sebastian Swenson grabbed his elderly relative’s keys and drove a mile and a half to a convenience store during morning rush hour Wednesday in Blaine,according to FOX9.
The sweet-toothed tot — who climbed up onto his great-grandpa’s walker to snatch the keys off a wall hook — swerved along the four-lane road at 15 mph until a police officer spotted him, the local station reported. He was pulled over at a nearby gas station.
“He watches everything people do and he’ll repeat it,” his great-grandpa, Roy Becker, told FOX9.
The small-time car crook hit a few mailboxes and a tree along the way — but nobody was injured.
“It could’ve been very serious,” Capt. Mark Boerboom with the Blaine Police Department told the station. “He could’ve hit a car. He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. We could be talking about a funeral.”
