PHILADELPHIA - Police expect to charge a 10-year-old Philadelphia boy with auto theft and related charges after they say he swiped a van then crashed it into five parked cars.
Authorities say the boy made it less than a block after stealing a van that was unloading furniture early Sunday afternoon in West Philadelphia.
Investigators say the boy grabbed the keys from the rear door and jumped in the driver's seat. The brief joyride ended when the van crashed into the rear of a fifth parked car.
The boy's name wasn't released. Police say he'll be charged as a juvenile.
