And, according to The Arizona Republic...his ride was "purloined" from a parking lot. Yes...I'm a big fan of the word "purloined".
Evan Longoria, a star player for the Tampa Bay Rays major league team, was having his classic 1967 black and white Camaro RS, valued at $75,000, upgraded by a Gilbert company, only to have it purloined from an overflow lot in Chandler, police said.
That car and a Buick GSX, valued at $25,000, were stolen between late Saturday and early Sunday from an overflow lot at 260 E. Comstock Rd. in Chandler, said Chandler Police Det. David Ramer.
"In the words of the detective, it was a very sloppy job," Ramer said of the thefts.
Car theft is pretty standard, I guess, maybe, but c'mon, Chandler Police...maybe SEARCH for the dude's car before you drop the "detectives suspect the cars will be sold for their parts" nugget.
I mean, this is this guy's ride...not a lost cat. The least you can do is make an effort and not give up so fast.
That said...have you seen what "Longo" will do to get his cap back? Maybe he doesn't need the cops.
