    Vehicle was impounded for blocking a fire hydrant. Call Lincoln Towing.

      Hi Phil. Wondering how you knew where to find the car? My sister couldn’t get confirmation from Lincoln Towing until about 8am.

     I always wonder how do they steal something that new, that modern?  Was it unlocked?  How do thieves manage to bypass all the electronic safety features those vehicles have now?  Scary and frustrating!

      I’m with you Beto.  My understanding is that modern cars are really, really difficult to steal.  Certainly possible, but the thief would need access to advanced electronics to override the anti-theft devices.  It’s not 1985 when you can just hotwire a stolen car.  Anyway, glad the car was recovered and I hope the police can catch the thieves!
