You're doing it wrong

Note to car thieves: If you have to push the vehicle you're trying to steal, it might be a good idea to choose a different vehicle.

Two men in my hometown of Pine Bluff, AR, were arrested for stealing a county truck that was in "non-working condition." Authorities say Jefferson County Sheriff's Department Cpl. Andy Hoots (real name) spotted the county logo on a truck being pushed by three men and steered by another. When he approached, two escaped, but he arrested the other two, who were charged with theft of property.

Extra points: The county was keeping the truck for parts. Estimated value: $500.
