For proof of the fact that online car sales are often sketchy at best, we here at Landmark Ford Lincoln kindly turn your attention to Luke Ridings of Chattanooga, who recently bought a used Ford on the website Craigslist. Craig thought he was getting a great deal, but what he didn't know was that he was actually buying a stolen police cruiser that had been taken out of active duty and was set to be crushed in a few days.
The vehicle was too good to be true, listed at only $4,000 online. The cruiser had been stationed in Georgia, where it served the police force there for many years. Upon hearing of its strange trip to Tennessee, everyone on the force was baffled, as no one knew exactly how the cruiser escaped its crushing fate. We, however, are more inclined to think that it's Ridings who would have been baffled upon seeing that the vehicle he purchased featured full police specification gear.
This didn't stop Ridings from taking his new set of wheels for a joy ride, and unfortunately for him, it cost him quite a bit. Ridings was pulled over for drunk driving, at which point the vehicle's law enforcement pas was discovered. The lesson learned? Know who you're buying a car from, and make sure you know that car's history!
