A 17-YEAR-OLD who was with a group of youths that allegedly took a stolen pizza delivery car on a 300km joyride was due to face court in Hervey Bay on Thursday.

But Ellen Louise Burgess's charges of robbery with violence and unlawful use of a motor vehicle were adjourned and transferred to the Ipswich Magistrates Court.

They were arrested in Hervey Bay the following day.
