Things to do when stealing a car

stick-shift.jpgMake sure there’s nobody watching. Think about wearing gloves so you don’t leave prints. Try to be quiet and avoid drawing attention to yourself.

Oh, and if you don’t know how to drive stick, avoid stealing a manual transmission car. Things just won’t turn out so good:

According to police, Garry Michael Wilson drove a stolen BMW Z3 just two blocks Saturday night before the car’s manual transmission apparently couldn’t take any more grinding punishment.
“He just couldn’t drive the car,” said police Lt. Justin Barley.
A resident on High Street alerted police when he heard someone in front of his house revving the stolen car’s engine. Wilson got out of the car and fled on foot, the witness told police. The suspect was later arrested at a nearby house.
