The Code of Thieves

I had to share. It's just too funny...

A couple of weeks ago I had dinner with a cop. As we sat in the restaurant, his personal vehicle was stolen right out of the parking lot. It wasn't particularly new and it had no alarm system, so apparently nobody noticed when the thieves absconded with it. The particularly painful part was that it was equipped with a DoD sticker and contained all his work gear.

Fast-forward two weeks: His vehicle was found early this morning. The contents were gone, the door locks were damaged, and it had hundreds of miles added to the odometer. And where was it discovered? In the same parking lot where he'd left it... three rows over.

Maybe the thieves just wanted to "borrow" it...?
