A pair of 5-year-old boys in Russia dug a tunnel under their pre-school as part of a plot to buy a luxury car.
In an operation that is believed to have been planned over several days, the duo used toy spades to form a passage under the kindergarten fence in the Ural Mountains city of Magnitogorsk, The Moscow Times reported citing the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.
Seizing their chance to escape during their afternoon break, the boys crawled under the fence. They then reportedly embarked on a 2km to a Jaguar car dealership.
When the woman at the showroom asked the boys why they were there, they told her they wanted to buy a car but didn’t have enough money.
The staff member then escorted the intrepid pair to the nearest police station.
The teacher on duty when the pair escaped has since been fired, according to the newspaper.
The regional interior ministry for Chelyabinsk confirmed the boys' escape to AFP.
“We don't have any details yet, we can only confirm the fact itself,” a spokesman told the agency.Reuse content
