PSA: If you're going to rob your mechanic, it's unnecessary to pay for your repairs first

by Chris Shunk on Mar 15th, 2009 at 2:04PM


Police in Ypsilanti, MI had little trouble nabbing a thief suspected of holding up a repair shop employee at gunpoint because they knew exactly what car he was driving. The 24-year-old alleged robber dropped his vehicle off at the repair facility on Wednesday and came to pick it up on Friday. The man paid $200 for the repairs, but used the cold hard steel of a gun to request all the money in the register after being given his change. The man was given $500 from the register and he drove off in his newly repaired car.

If this doesn't sound like a great robbery plan to you, you're spot-on. Not only did the shop know the make, model and likely the license plate number of the vehicle, they likely also had the gentleman's contact information so they could inform him that repairs were done. We know that sometimes repair costs can feel like highway robbery, but payback just isn't an option.
