Rockhampton kids who stole car and drove south disappointed when they end up in Grafton.

“It’s like we swapped one shithole for another,” said the oldest in the group, the unnamed 14-year-old.

Four kids from Gracemere in Central Queensland decided to go on a fishing trip this weekend by stealing a Nissan Patrol and heading south. After a long drive the kids we’re eventually apprehended in Grafton, New South Wales. Upon exiting the vehicle, the kids – aged 14, 13, 13 and 10 – were naturally excited to be out of Rockhampton, until they took one look at Grafton and felt nothing but disappointment.

“If we wanted to end up in a dead end town we could have just driven to Gladstone. It’s like we swapped one shithole for another,” said the oldest in the group, the unnamed 14-year-old.

The kids were apprehended after being spotted stopping to get petrol, before doing a drive-off without paying – just one of the many ballsy moves pulled by the youngsters.

No doubt being juveniles the justice system with throw an incredibly stern warning at them before letting them go. That said, the police do feel the group learned their lesson by seeing just how similar most towns are to Rockhampton, which will hopefully discourage them from doing this again.
