Damned scumbags that won't work for what they want and instead steal it from others! I hope they catch them and quick.

I hope you filed a police report. Did this person get arrested and the seller charged with receiving stolen property?

So is the guy in the pics the one who was stealing these cars, or did he purchase them from said thief? Hopefully heads roll for this. Pretty ballsy move to post a pic of the stolen car on Craigslist.

That place has been in So.Modesto forever did they really not think something was up when the kid brought the car in ? Sounds fishy to me. I hope that kids picture gets posted everywhere as a thieving dirt bag. Come to Modesto on vacation leave Modesto on probation.

The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Another member should also be removed as a preventive measure.

So, what happened? Is this guy in custody or what? too much blah about cutting body parts and not much legal action. I have a friend who is a Detective, and he says that 99% of people don't follow through with the report after they are made whole( get their stuff back ). I know I would pursue it all the way through!
