A teenage boy has reportedly been caught driving a motorized Esky filled with drugs in southeastern Melbourne.
Police said the 17-year-old was seen driving a makeshift car around Lyrebird Drive in his Carrum Downs suburb on Saturday.
After several police calls from concerned neighbors, officers on the spot were able to track down the boy with the help of the police helicopter.
Police arrived and reportedly found the teen straddling the non-roadworthy vehicle, which had road signs affixed to the front and rear, as well as two shovels to the side.

Inside the portable cooler, officers reportedly discovered what they have described as a “mobile marijuana unit,” containing drugs, electric scales and a water pipe.
The Esky is taken on the road and the boy is taken care of by the police.
Photos of the unusual device were posted to Facebook by Frankston Police Service Area on Monday, amusing many Aussies.
“You can’t make this up,” one wrote.
“Sounds like a skit from The Chaser.”
“I’m not going to lie, part of me would be a little impressed,” added another.
‘Why are we punishing such great Australian ingenuity? This is gold,” said a third.
