THEIVING BASTARDS ARRESTED!!!!!

For all you poor Holden fans out there who have had their pride and joys stolen or broken into, this story should cheer you up!

Back in November 2002, I'd been out on the town one Friday night with my best mate. I didn't really hit the bottle much but my mate did so he spent the night at my place.

At 2:05 am I woke to hear someone trying to start a car. Next thing my mate's on the balcony yellin' 'OI!!!'. I shot up out of bed and looked out the window to see someone in his car with the door open. Just then the motor started and he bunny hopped it up the street. I raced out, grabed my thongs, keys, wallet and the keys to the HX.

A good 5 minutes passed while all 4 of us got down to the garage into the car. I thought he'd be long gone. As soon as I pulled out of the driveway and headed up the road we spotted it headed in the other direction. The dirty bastard took the car to the McDonalds at the top of the road to pick his mates up. Because of the high traffic island in the middle of the road I couldn't do a U turn so I had to drop the hammer in second up to the next intersection. Must have woken up everyone in the area!

I spun the car around but then we couldn't see them. Everyone in the car was telling me to keep going straight. But if they went that way I'd still see them. I hung a left and gassed it up the hill. There they were sitting at a red light. I calmly stopped behind them thinking 'what the hell do I do now?!?!'. They didn't know we were following them so I reached for my phone, dialled 000 and handed it to my mate.

We gave a dresription of both cars to the cops, our location and every side street we passed for the next 20 minutes. It was such a relief when we saw a police car hiding on the side of the road with all his lights out. I gave them a toot with the horn as we passed then he took off. Straight pass us and on the ass of the other car then he hit the lights and siren. He drove for about a K real slow before he decided to stop.

We were about to pull up behind them but the cop on the phone said 'hang on, those bastards don't know you followed them so just keep going so they wont be able to see you'. I drove past and hid the HX up a side street. By the time we'd walked back to the road I counted 4 police cars, 1 police paddy wagon, 2 unmarked police cars, and 2 tow trucks all with their little lights flashing everywhere and blocking 3 of the 4 lanes of traffic.

The driver got done for DD and theft of a motor vehicle and the other occupants got done also. My mate got his car back undamaged and nobody was hurt. You couldn't have asked for a better outcome. One of the cops came up to us and thanked us for handling the situation responsibly. When I got back home I didn't get much sleep! and that's all I have to say about that.

great story mate, i'm glad to hear your friend got his car back safe and sound!! theres no telling what could have happened if you had of got out at the lights and tried to beat the theives to a pulp.. they could have took off thru the lights and crashed into another car, or even reversed back into yours!
i think the cop was right on the money saying you handled the situation responsibly! good on ya!

Bloody hell, good story.

Smart thinking with calling in the calvalry there, anything could have happened if you tried to re-steal the car back of the pricks, would of been a hell of an adreniline packed ride following them no wonder you didnt get much sleep.

my brother has lost 2 cars, both in sydney
1 was a $25k XY GT and the other he lost from cabramatta-- now get ready to cry guys, it was one of only 86 factory released EH Premiers with power steering, it had every extra, i was only a boy and i think that would have made the car about 10 or 12 years old at the time , but it was pristine in every sense of the word.
the cops found it out along heathcoate road in the scrub, stripped, all the panels kicked in and they had tried to burn what was left but the leather didn't want to play.
I can still see the car and remember going for cruises in it in my memories and it still to this day it makes me sigh
