Theif Uses Crane To Steal Jeep From Car Lot

Last updated on Thursday, October 20, 2011

(LAPORTE, Ind.) (AP) - A thief literally lifted a Jeep Wrangler from a LaPorte Chrysler lot by using a crane to make the heist.

A surveillance camera captured someone driving a truck with a crane onto the lot, then circling around to park next to the 2008 Wrangler before hooking it with the crane and loading it onto a trailer. It took the thief only six minutes to steal the Jeep.

Dealership owner Matt Magnuson says it is the craziest idea he's heard of for stealing a vehicle.
