Default Is there a problem officer ?

Personally when stealing lamp posts I try not to use a vehicle
that may break down , but that is just me .



Fortunately a a kind heart offered to give him a tow .



Even so the story did not end well for the thief .
Quote:
Not only was he allegedly intoxicated and in possession of stolen property,
he didn’t have insurance, his license was expired, and of course,
“cargo may not be transported in this way.” More charges may be pending.

full story here .

It would be interesting to know the year of manufacture . The first
model had a 375 cc engine .

What I'd like to know is how he managed to get them loaded onto the car and kept them in place while securing them.
