Korumburra's Commercial Street

POLICE are yet to recover a car stolen from Korumburra on Monday with three children on board.
The thief released the children from the car shortly after stealing the Ford station wagon from Commercial Street.
The mother of the three boys, Raeleyn Taylor, watched helplessly as the thief drove the car north with the boys, Tarkyn, 5, Maison, 2, and Keyon, 1, still on board.
Detective Acting Sergeant from the Bass Coast Criminal Investigation Unit, Andrew Payne described it as a “brazen theft.”
“The mother of the children was extremely distressed and was greatly relieved when the children were found a short time later,” he said.
Police praised five-year-old Tarkyn for doing a fantastic job of looking after his siblings throughout the ordeal.
“He was very protective of his younger brothers and looked after them until he saw someone he knew,” Detective Payne said.
Police believe the thief did not realise the boys were on the back seat of the car.
The incident began at 3.15pm Monday, when Ms Taylor parked her station wagon outside a laundromat in Commercial Street.
Ms Taylor left her children in the car, with the keys in the ignition, while she took her washing in to the laundromat.
When she returned to her car, she was met with every parent’s worst nightmare.
Ms Taylor could see her car, with her three sons still inside, travelling down Commercial Street around three shops away.
“I dropped my washing and got up on a seat to watch the car, but lost sight of it,” Ms Taylor said.
