some thieves are very creative

Some crooks get very creative. Here are two examples of theft involving cars, where the thief did not steal the car.

Example # 1 – just steal the headlight

Turns out that the fancy headlights of some Porsche models are just perfect for indoor growing of marijuana plants. They are just the right type of light and they run cooler than traditional hydroponic lights. They also require less electricity. They are, of course, rather pricey, so you save a LOT of money if you steal them rather than looking for a deal at Princess Auto. If you own a Porsche, you better check your headlights before you drive away from your parking spot.

Example # 2 – just steal the seat

Expensive SUVs have expensive back seats. A good crew can break in and steal the back seat in as little as 40 seconds. They then sell them to people looking to replace their worn out seats. The thieves can get up to $1,000 on the used market. Even if the police nab one during the attempt to sell, they have a hard time re-uniting the seat with the correct owner as there are no identification marks on the seat. Police are suggesting that owners engrave the vehicle VIN on the underside of the seats. If you do lose a seat, it can cost you $4K to get it replaced at a dealer.
