Really grand theft auto.

A car dealer in Nebraska seems to have come onto his lot in the middle of the night with a couple of his senior managers and loaded up a bunch of cars onto transporters. Then the three apparently cleaned out their desks and rode off into the... er... sunrise with the boosted vehicles.

Employees were puzzled when they showed up at work yesterday morning to find no cars. And no boss, either.

The finance company that owns the cars is obviously a little put out.

I read the manual; when people quit and vanish after a visit from John Galt they are supposed to leave all their stuff behind.

I'm definitely sure you're supposed to leave other people's stuff behind, too.

At least the guy didn't come up with a wacky scheme to have two goons kidnap his wife so he could collect the ransom money from his rich but disapproving father-in-law. Oh ya. You betcha.

Is it just me or are automobiles a bad idea for something like this, on account of having their VIN stamped all over the place?

Not if they are going to Me'hico....

....funny, they picked a day to do this when the Scottsbluff CoP was testifying in Lincoln (other end of the state). I saw him wandering the halls while I was waiting on the LB430 (expansion of CCW law) hearing.

The three have been caught in Utah.


WV: "Thrili" -- what they had for 24 hours.

Utah?

I pictured them going straight down the 20 lane Amero Superhighway through Oklahoma and Texas to El Paso, then up and over into Ciudad de Juarez, Chihuahua.
