Three city youths will appear in the Invercargill Youth Court today, after stealing a car and hooning around the grounds of Southland Boys' High School overnight.

Acting senior sergeant Ian Martin, of Invercargill, said at about 11.45pm last night, the group, all aged 16 years, broke into Crawford Car Rentals, on Clyde St, and stole a vehicle.

Some time later the car was seen ‘‘tearing up’’ in the Southland Boys’ High School grounds with its lights off.

"There was a bit of damage done to the vehicle, because they rammed the gates to get out of Crawford Rentals and then smashed a fence and so forth at Southland Boys','' he said.

After police were called, they found the vehicle leaving the school and it was stopped in Queens Drive, he said.

A female was apprehended by police but the two males in the stolen car fled on foot, before being found by police a short time later, he said.

All three would appear in the youth court today, on charges of unlawfully taking a motor vehicle, burglary, and reckless driving, Mr Martin said.
