Teenager hijacks tram, collects passengers

A Russian teenager has been arrested by police for charge of hijacking a tram and collecting passengers for 40 minutes.

The 15-year-old boy took charge of the vehicle in the mountain town of Zlatoust earlier this month and drove it around its usual route, collecting and dropping off commuters.

Police said on Friday that the teen, who hijacked the vehicle sitting unattended on a side track, must have had a firm knowledge of trams in order to operate it.

A senior police official Pavel Pavlov told media persons, “You have to have special knowledge to be able to run them.” Authorities have now opened an inquiry into the theft of the vehicle, which could be punishable up to five years in prison.
