Police: Teen Faked BMW Theft To Buy Bentley

Thought you all might get a kick out of this. Seems some high school kid didn't think a 2003 BMW M3 was nice enough, so he hatched a brilliant plan to get some money to purchase a Bentley.

Perhaps everybody in this forum should chime in that my post was, in reality, a repost. Next time I start a new thread I'll check all 20+ forums and read all the threads posted in the last 90 days to make sure I don't duplicate a post.

Thanks for the help, LmtdSlip.

My impression is that there seems to be a prize for being to first one to identify a new thread as a repost. Many people try to win it.

That's what the search button is for.

You'll find at least three threads.
