A friend of mine sent me this on IRC and my first thought was, “Thank God, it wasn’t someone from Alabama.” LOL!
If you steal a car from a dealership, don’t try to trade that car back in at the same place.
Believe it or not, that’s exactly what Jazrahel King is accused of doing at a Norwalk, Connecticut car dealership.
Employees say the 29-year-old man went for a test drive about a month ago but was turned down on financing because of his credit.
So King simply walked out, got in the car and drove off.
He then brought the car back to the very same dealership over the weekend and tried to trade it in for a bigger vehicle.
“There’s got to be something wrong with this guy to come back, just not even two months after he stole the vehicle and try to sell it to us. Sell us our own vehicle,” says Diego Centurion, the dealership manager.
King is now in jail on car theft charges.
The dealership says it is changing its policy about starting up cars in advance for test drives.
I ran across another article covering this story, at first the guy didn’t understand why they wouldn’t buy it from him. Hey genius, I don’t think it has anything to do with whether or not it has a luggage rack! ;)
