The thieves allegedly stole the car in Virginia, USA but before they drove off with the vehicle, they decided to drop the 8-year-old child sitting in the back seat off at school.
Kindhearted thieves steal car, find the owner's child inside and dropped him off at school
Kindhearted thieves went viral after they stole a car, find the owner's child inside and they dropped him off at school.
Metro UK reported that the boy's mother left him inside the car listening to music while she went inside to open her shop before dropping him off.
But this time, opportunistic thieves noticed the vehicle was running and hopped inside.
When the boy’s mum realised what happened she phoned the police, naturally desperate to find out he was okay.
Luckily, the police found him ten minutes later ‘sitting in class as if nothing had happened,’ Norfolk police spokeswoman Melinda Wray told People magazine. The boy told the thieves where he went to school and they just dropped him there after claiming his mum had asked them to.
Although police still haven’t caught the thieves but people are praising them for getting the boy to school and making sure he was safe.
