Stuart jumped out of bed and tore outside. Yanking open the passenger door he plumped himself onto the seat beside the would-be car thief. The dilemma was he had forgotten to put any clothes on.
When the thief saw a naked man beside him, he flung the door open and made a run for it.
Stuart said “All right mate, I said to him, where are we going then?' And he jumped out of the car and legged it. I don’t know what the guy must have thought when a large naked bloke got into the car next to him, but when your car is being stolen you don’t think about it, you just react.”
Stuart continued to drive around the streets in the hope of finding the thief, even though he was still undressed. He finally gave up, in case he got pulled over for indecent exposure.
What would Stuart have done however, if he had found the thief? Leapt out and apprehended him and taken him to the local police station? The problem then would have been that the police would have to have dealt with two crimes. The alleged attempt at car theft, as well as indecent exposure.
No doubt Steve stopped his car from being stolen, through his quick thinking action, but there are tips on how to help stop car theft, such as:
• don’t leave your keys in the car (particularly at petrol stations)
• don’t leave the vehicle with the motor running
• engrave personal ID numbers on car stereos and cell phones
• lock your car and park in well lit areas
• etch Vehicle Identification Numbers on major parts of your car.
