Yarra Trams yesterday said it would still consider hiring a 15-year old
who allegedly stole two trams over the weeked — once he's old enough.
A 15-year-old boy who allegedly stole a Melbourne tram and drove for 40
minutes picking up and setting down passengers, may yet be allowed to
work as a tram driver, despite his nine charges related to the incident.
"We have a very good recruiting policy and anybody who passes the mustard
for our recruiting policy we'd be glad to offer a job to, provided
he's old enough to hold a driver's licence," Yarra Trams Deputy Chief
Executive, Dennis Cliche, told Australian Associated Press on Monday.
Detective Senior Constable Barry Hills of Victoria Police, said of the
boy, "He's a nice lad, he's a good lad. I think his obsession just got
the better of him."
