Teenagers steal and crash a van "decorated as Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine"
Zoinks! Two teenagers 'steal a van decorated as Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine' in Minnesota... Only to crash into one of the neighborhood's houses
Two teenagers are suspected of stealing a distinctive Mystery Machine van in St Paul, Minnesota - only to crash into a home.
The van, painted blue and green with yellow flowers and 'The Mystery Machine' in red letters, went through a fence and into the house's wooden steps around 3am on Friday.
Officers later identified and located two teenage suspects, Fox 10 wrote. No injuries have been reported.
Meanwhile Guy Frechette, the owner of the van, woke up to the sound of police knocking on his door to tell him his hand-painted vehicle had been stolen.

Aww, part of the story is so sweet!
"The family has owned three Mystery Machine vans so far - included the one that got stolen and damaged in Friday's accident.
It all began when Frechette's son, Avery, who is now 21 and has just graduated from mechanic school, found a Mystery Machine toy in his McDonald's Happy Meal.
Their old rusty van needed to be painted again and the Frechettes had told Avery, who was about three or four years old, that he could pick whatever pattern he wanted.
Avery told his dad: 'I want to paint it like this!' once he found the Mystery Machine toy,
They have owned their current van, which has a bathroom, a kitchen and a furnace, for about seven years.
The family is on a quest to visit all of Minnesota's state parks and were planning to use the van this summer - but it might be too damaged."
When they do catch the teenagers who did this, I think part of whatever deal they make involves fixing or paying for the van to be fixed!
