A 13-year-old Czechoslovakian boy was detained after he drove his uncle's car across Moravia and tried to sell it for nearly $4,200 to a man on the street, the state news agency CTK reported.

The boy stole the car, which was recently purchased and without license plates, from his uncle and drove it about 80 miles from Hodonin to Ostrova, the news agency said this week.When asked by the police how he managed to drive the distance on icy roads, the boy said: "I have some experience from the years when I was younger."
