Reasons For Car Thievery
Ask that question after this week-end in La Crosse, you might get a variety of answers. After the armed robbery at a 75 year-old woman's house on the southside, it was pretty clear the thugs that roughed her up and gave her bruises on her fingers where they pulled her rings off stole her new Toyota because it was a pretty nice ride and they just needed to get away. The 16 year-old Central student who stole a car said he did it because he didn't have a license. And the guy who stole a running SUV out of a parking ramp while its owner was trying to help out a friend in a fight: that drunken car thief told cops, he just wanted to get in trouble. Mission accomplished.
