A couple of months ago, Timothy Wolfe, 50, of Lake City, Florida, went to the Lake City Chrysler Dodge Jeep to buy a new car. As part of the deal, he wanted to trade in a vehicle. As it happens, however, the car had been stolen from the dealership a few days earlier. After police were called, Wolfe admitted to having committed the theft, which was caught on surveillance video. He was charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen property.
On the other hand, consider the plight of two men in Byram, Mississippi, who couldn’t believe their luck when they came across an Acura with the keys in it and a “free car” sign. After driving the car to a family member’s house, they began to check it out, only to discover that there was a dead body in the trunk. The coroner reported that the body, which showed no visible signs of trauma, had been in the trunk for at least 24 hours.
