Police Arrest Third-Row SUV Seats Thieves in Anaheim
We mean, they got in there and, without touching the rest of the car, the dashboard or anything else, they ripped off the third-row seats and ran away. However, local police officers joined forces with Orange County Auto Theft Task Force, the Los Angeles, Torrance, Riverside and Inglewood police departments and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department to locate and arrest Veshan Wooden, 22, of Hawthorne and Automii Joseph, 23, of Los Angeles.
Both were suspected of car burglaries in Southern California, with 64 thefts reported only in Anaheim, Sgt. Bob Dunn was quoted as saying by The Orange County Register.
"It only took them one or two minutes to get these seats out," Dunn said.
But stealing third-row seats proved to be quite a profitable activity as the two thieves managed to sell parts worth no more no less than $100,000 from selling them to auto parts stores. And, to give you an idea on how much such a product costs, each owner had to pay between $1,200 and $1,400 to get a new third-row seat for a large SUV.
