Jinkies! St. Paul police had a mystery on their hands after a stolen van crashed into a house in St. Paul early Friday.
When officers arrived on the scene about 3 a.m., they discovered not just any van, but a rad, "Scooby Doo"-inspired magical Mystery Machine.
The vehicle, which sustained front-end damage, hit a house on the 1000 block of East Fourth Street in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood.
Sgt. Mike Ernster, a St. Paul police spokesman, said officers were able to track down the owner of the vehicle, who lived in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood and had last seen the van parked outside his house Thursday night.
After a search, two teens were found nearby, and officers continue to investigate the mystery.
Meanwhile, St. Paul police had more fun with the incident than a Saturday morning cartoon, posting this update to Twitter:
Zoinks! They would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for that meddling house in the way. Suspects located. pic.twitter.com/UhSA5FDpaJ— St. Paul Police PIO (@sppdPIO) May 13, 2016
