Fast, Furious, and facing the Magistrate

By johnboy - 10 July 2012 117

ACT Policing has charged an 18-year-old man with multiple theft charges, including that of several high performance cars, after a search warrant was executed on a Kingston residence yesterday.

The cars, a Porsche Boxster, a Porsche Cayenne and a Subaru Impreza WRX, were all driven away after the ignition keys were stolen during a burglary on a residential address in Kingston last week.

The Cayenne was later recovered on Dairy Flat Road in Fyshwick, the WRX in Kingston, and the Boxster in a church carpark in Narrabundah.

Acting on information received and forensic material obtained, around 11.45am yesterday (Monday, July 9) police executed the search warrant and seized a number of items. The alleged offender, who was present at the time of the warrant, was subsequently arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House.

He will face the ACT Magistrates court today charged with a series of offences including taking a motor vehicle without consent, possession of a prohibited substance, theft and aggravated burglary.

This would have never happened if this poor boy had somewhere to drive and get his driver-frustration out his system.

And now, because of this, his only option is to steal from others.

I can only assume that Gantz is using sarcasim in reference to the Hume hoon drivers thread, where people were suggesting that if the gubmint had built a drag strip “like they promised” (which they didn’t), it would curb the problem of hoon drivers.

yes they did….more than once and more than one government now go away you ill informed goose

Okay, so before I form an opinion one way or the other would anyone care to provide evidence of the alleged promises?

Even if they did build it, I’d guarantee the family jewels that there would be no reduction in the amount of (naughty words) doing burn outs or driving like maniacs. There would only be excuses for why they didn’t use it.

….its not big enough
….the road is too rough
….cost to go is too high
….its not open long enough
….its too crowded
….too far away

So why bother with it.

You can pick up a late 90s Boxter for around 25k (probably less), and WRX are cheap as chips (for what they are).

Another reminder to keep your car keys hidden or keep them with you if you are out and about.

Um… ‘boo-hoo’?

I actually suspect it has more to do with his socio-economic level and upbringing than his ‘need for speed’ but anyway…

Put on a nice suit and I’m sure you’d be able to test drive one with the dealer in the car too.

Or, he could have worked as a vehicle transporter.
Alas I suspect this person would’ve been unable to obtain gainful employment.

As a bonus, you don’t have to deal with sex attacks in the prison showers for the privilege of a drive.

Hopefully this scumbag gets a spell in the clink.

Dilandach 10:14 am 10 Jul 12

The stupidity… where to begin?

Some lowlife that was driving a standard issue white commodore one day but has a boxter sitting in the driveway the next might attract a little bit of attention….. not to mention the same suburb.

“I don’t have nice stuff so i’ll take someone else’s” good work champ.
