Always great to see the old home town make the news....
A crackhead stole my friend’s car once and my friend found him sitting in it a couple days later.
The guy asked him for a ride home. LOL
There was a story a couple of weeks ago about customers at a restaurant trying to pay for their meal with a credit card that turned out to be the waitress’s stolen card.
What are the odds?
Lottery Odds just went down.
Maybe she should have called her “car phone.”
Jerry: Hello? Is this 555-8383?
Car thief: I have no idea.
Jerry: Can I ask you a question?
Car thief: Sure.
Jerry: Did you steal my car?
Car thief: Yes I did.
Jerry: You did?!
Car thief: I did.
Jerry: That’s my car!

Jerry: What are you gonna do with it?
Car thief: I dunno, drive around.
Jerry: Then can I have it back?
Car thief: Mmmm, nah, I’m gonna keep it.
A colleague had his car stolen, and the cops found it a week later. Can’t remember if it was for a joy ride, parts, or a more nefarious reason, but a bum or two took up residence, and the interior had to be completely ripped out, and replaced.
I know a guy who had his car stolen and he found it out of gas a year later less than 10 miles from his home. Even his golf clubs were still in the trunk.
So, I would imagine that the thief checked out the trunk via the back seat, and decided that popping and damaging the trunk for clubs to pawn would draw too much attention to the vehicle for the value.
Some fifteen years ago, my mother's car was stolen from in front of her house. While driving a rental car around to look at replacement vehicles a few days later, she ventured into a part of the city where she rarely goes and took a route that she'd never before driven. Despite the odds, she spotted her stolen car parked along the street.
I believe the ignition lock was broken so that the switch would turn without a key, but apart from that the only thing wrong with the car was the gasoline tank and radiator - both had been drained.
She drove the old tank for another five years.
