this was my girlfriends car and that bastard stole it from our work last week, i cant believe he was stupid enough to still be driving the car a week later! and in the same clothes!!! did you think you weren't going to get caught!! all i can say is thank you to the driver in the dodge ram for smashing into him and thank you to the police for doing an awesome job and putting that piece of crap in jail, where he clearly belongs!! all we wanted was for him to be caught, so once again thank you to the police involved, we could not be happier that he is going to be put away.

before he smashed up on winchester he veered off of Margarita onto honors with cops following in hot persuit he banked a quick right then another right onto our street Links , not knowing it was a dead end-he somehow booked a U-ey at the end and continued the other way down Links ct and back onto Margarita towards Winchester where he met his demise-whew-- glad there weren't any kids out playing in the culdesac!!!
