A 13-year-old girl went on an illegal road trip in western Newfoundland on Wednesday night.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary in Corner Brook said the girl stole the vehicle from the driveway of her foster home on West Valley Road.

The RCMP found her early on Thursday morning on the Trans-Canada Highway, near Stephenville – about an hour's drive away from the home. Police said the vehicle was towed from the scene to the RNC garage. 

The girl is charged with vehicle theft and five breaches of probation. She was held in custody overnight and will make a court appearance on Thursday.
