Insurance scam. The driver conveniently "leaves" his keys on the shelf whilst wearing pocketless pants, so that his accomplice can "steal" the keys within minutes (why's the guy shopping for car stereos anyway if he doesn't have his own car and needed to borrow one?). After waiting a few more minutes, the shopper reports the car stolen, with a corroboration of a sighting by the car's owner (the kid) for extra eyewitness evidentiary boost.

Hope they weren't dumb enough to have opened the policy last week or something.

Just so you know, I caught some car thieves red-handed this year. The investigation nabbed a few more career thieves from Maileland housing, and Waianae homeless shelter.
The car is still in impound months later, the thieves were on the street in a couple of days and I see them every day, and the owners are still out a car. Not only is the system broken, we are paying the thieves' rent and feeding them.

Yeah, especially with all the money he's saving borrowing people's cars instead of buying his own.

Better yet the article failed to mention that the guy has no drivers license too.

People that borrow don't really care what happens to your stuff. They can't afford their own, and resent those that do have. When you loan out expensive things, you will be taught a lesson that this BMW owner has now learned.

Out there? Are you implying that you are locked up somewhere(the state mental hospital)? You don't have to imply that, we all figured that out for ourselves.

In other words a "upper class Goldigger/call girl" instead of the trailer trash she really is.

To do:
Detailed background check of everyone involved.
~
Who insured it?
How many vehicles they've insured stolen in how long?
History of vehicle.
~
Taco Bell isn't open 24 hours a day yet the teen was waiting to be picked up early Friday morning.
Just curious what shift he worked.
What time was the alleged theft?

A crime of opportunity?
Or an opportunity of crime?
