A 13-year-old girl appeared in provincial court in Corner Brook today after she allegedly stole her foster parents' vehicle.
The vehicle was allegedly taken from a driveway of a residence on West Valley Road at 1:44 a.m.
The matter was called briefly, and set over until Friday afternoon for a bail hearing. Crown attorney Ed Ring is opposing her release.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police located the girl in Stephenville. The vehicle was found on the Trans-Canada Highway near Stephenville and brought to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary garage for the forensics identification.
The girl has been charged with theft of a motor vehicle and five breaches of probation. She is being held at the RCMP holding cells in Deer Lake until her court appearance.
