NOEL KING, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Noel King. Police in Norway say they recently got a call from a panicked teenager. He'd managed somehow to lock himself inside of a car, a car that he was trying to steal.

He said the teenager's tried to steal cars before, but at least he was able to get himself back out those other times.
