Police have slammed two Queensland girls who uploaded a selfie on Facebook from the back of a police van.
One of the teens took to the social networking site while handcuffed in the police vehicle on Monday to boast of their arrest, the Townsville Bulletin reported.
"Hahahaha In The Back Of The Police Van. Beat You," the photo caption read.
Earlier posts by the girl also documented their efforts to evade police.
"Getting Chased On Foot," she wrote.
In another post, she said she was "joyriding".
Townsville Inspector Glenn Doyle said it was concerning to see the young offenders' flippant attitude towards the law.
"From our perspective, it's disappointing that they seem to be celebrating the fact that they've been arrested, almost as if it's a badge of honour," he said.
It is believed the two girls pictured were with up to six other people when they were arrested after allegedly parking a stolen car in the suburb of Kelso.
They were released later that day without charge, pending further investigation.
