ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – A 15-year-old boy from Abbotsford, B.C., has some explaining to do after being stopped while speeding in the family Cadillac and given tickets totalling $759.
Oh yes, and the Caddy was impounded for a week.
Police say the boy apparently took the family’s 2008 Cadillac CTS without permission last Saturday to meet a girl.
It seems he was trying to get the vehicle back home before anyone would notice it was missing when he sped past a Mountie on the Trans-Canada Highway about 2 a.m.
Corp. Robert McDonald says the boy was travelling 175 kilometres an hour in a 100 kilometre zone when he was pulled over.
McDonald says the boy was ticketed for speeding and driving without a license.
