CPD brought the swarm tonight.. Good Work!

nameless April 13, 2014 at 12:03 AM

heard them by my house, I don’t know why people think they’ll get away with stolen vehicles

Pax April 13, 2014 at 12:46 AM

Was driving on Farm Bureau and as I passed wren, the car was right behind me and I immediately pulled to the side. So glad to hear no one was hurt. Thanks for the update!

Go k-9! Do we know which k-9?

Antler April 13, 2014 at 6:58 AM

Fantastic, CPD ….plus canine officers……. plus Claycord!

anon April 13, 2014 at 6:59 AM

Will we ever here about Bart Police chasing after a car stolen out of a Bart parking lot?

Just sayin April 13, 2014 at 7:17 AM

WOW, CPD finally caught someone!

Police Cars need to be equipped..... April 13, 2014 at 7:17 AM

with Bazookas.

Woohoo! April 13, 2014 at 7:29 AM

Now THAT’S the way these stories are supposed to end. I hope they resisted the dog, too.

Fred April 13, 2014 at 8:50 AM

Wish we had Judges that took licenses away forever from punks like these & years of jail time.

ConcordMike April 13, 2014 at 9:17 AM

Many thanks to ClayCord and angencies involved in pursuit.

@ Fred, #21-------Get real, a license isn't necessary to drive a stolen car April 13, 2014 at 10:15 AM

Criminals don’t worry about such trivial things as having a driver license, and driving without a license isn’t going to get them any jail time.

Michelle April 13, 2014 at 10:21 AM

Nicely done cpd and K9.

Until ... April 13, 2014 at 10:36 AM

We hold the private parties that sell older vehicles
for cash to any one( no license, DUI’s etc), these
people will get a vehicle some how, it won’t stop
auto theft but it will cut down on those others getting
behind the wheel. Glad they finally caught someone.

The 40 year old male should be seeting a good example for the younger man..... April 13, 2014 at 10:56 AM

instead, he was probably looking for a secluded place to perform depraved sex acts on him….

JumboJack April 13, 2014 at 11:29 AM

Nothing better than CPD! They always get the bad guy! I hope the take down was painful for the thugs! The sound of say the car thief feeling some pain from possibly resisting! it’s these car thief’s that don’t like Concord PD,,it’s always a thrill to hear they are caught! And in WCDF ! No freedom!

You have a depraved imagination #26 April 13, 2014 at 1:15 PM

I’ll agree with you that the older gentleman (if you can call him that) should be setting an example but sadly he is probably just as screwed up as the driver.

@25 April 13, 2014 at 1:22 PM

Do you seriously think that if I sell a $1000 pos car on craigslist for cash that I should have to run a background check on the buyer? Freakin’ ridiculous!

Julio April 13, 2014 at 4:37 PM

“Until we hold private parties responsible for selling older cars to anyone for cash” nothing will be safe. What?! In my nearly 75 years I have sold many cars for cash and I bet not one of them has been used in a crime.

What the h**l are you talking about #25?

slagheap April 13, 2014 at 5:48 PM

atta’ way, coppers. great job!

At Julio... April 13, 2014 at 8:31 PM

They are called straw purchases, a person buys
a car from a private party and is either a restricted
driver, or will use it in-registered for as long as
he can get away with it . Dealers cannot make
straw purchases, that’s why persons with DUI’s
will buy from private parties because all these
people want is the cash. And unless you checked
for a valid license and insurance , you cannot
possibly say that your car did not end up in
the hands of a restricted driver. I have seen this
happen many times in my 25 years in the auto
buisiness. Think about it, and oh yah, the brake
is the one on the left, on the left.

@32 April 13, 2014 at 9:36 PM

Even if I do check for a driver’s license and insurance, I still can’t guarantee that my car won’t end up in the hands of a restricted driver and frankly, it’s not up to me to prevent it.

anon April 14, 2014 at 9:44 AM

32, good warning. would you also say the seller should double check to see that the buyer did his part in filling out the title exchange and turning it in? i’m not so experienced in selling.
