Friggin thieving SCUMBAGS. I seriously would bring back public hangings just for people like this. People that take from others (government included) have a special place in hell reserved for them.
Back in the day, it was super easy mechanically to just jam something in the ignition switch, or cut the wires and twist them together, etc.. My '86 Grand Marquis was stolen in Phoenix, AZ back in 2000. They found it almost a year later in Bell, CA. I paid $500 in fees to get it out of impound and drove it 5 hours back to Livermore, where I was living at the time. The thieves put 7k miles on it - my oil filter was still there on the engine. They broke the quarter glass and pushed the power lock button on the driver's door using a rod, popped the plastic on the column, jumped some wires and off they went in the middle of the night. I woke up to a pile of glass in my parking spot, but no car.
This was NUTS how fast they were able to drive off! Under 6 minutes in a modern vehicle is amazing to me. Clearly the fault of the manufacturer. They're the ones making these things so complicated to troubleshoot electrical problems on ... and they can't be bothered to build a better anti-theft system on a vehicle that costs 6-figures? NO is right!!!
As much as I despise lawsuits, I hope someone with the motivation gets a class action suit going. This is a case where this is well warranted.
My condolences to the OP. I know the feeling. Don't forget to claim the loss on your taxes the next tax season.
