An Australian 12-year-old boy has been arrested Saturday in Broken Hill Police Station, an isolated mining town, after driving 1300km (about 800 miles), from his home on the mid north coast.

According the police the boy was planning a 4000km journey from Kendall, NSW, on his way to Perth, the other side of Australia. The journey involves going across some of the harshest deserts in country. He was pulled over after about a third of the way, when police noticed his car’s bumper was dragging along the road.

Detective inspector Kim Fehon said that the boy stopped on Saturday morning at a service station without paying for the fuel.

Fehon told AAP on Monday “He’d taken the family car. His parents reported him missing immediately after he left home, so they were looking for him.”

Fehon confirmed the car had suffered some damage: “So it appears [the boy] did have an accident while driving.”

The boy would be “dealt with” under the Young Offenders Act once he was interviewed in Kendall, a NSW police media spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “He will get a juvenile caution or warning or something like that.”
