A Car Thief Says "The Corona" Made Him Do It
I expect we'll hear a LOT more people blaming crimes on coronavirus soon.
There's a 70-year-old guy named Alvin Rementer in St. Petersburg, Florida. And in late January, he pawned his 2000 Chevy Silverado for $1,500.
Well . . . around 7:00 A.M. on Saturday, Alvin went to the pawn shop with his spare key and stole his car.
A cop spotted it and pulled him over. And Alvin admitted he stole his own car . . . because he was, quote, "freaked out over the corona and the overall situation."
He was arrested for felony grand theft auto.
