If you have got a vehicle that just makes everyone’s heads turn each time you pass by, then you most certainly are the envy of most people. But you are also attracting the attention of some wrongdoers. These bad people may like your vehicle and take off with it in the form of a carjack.
Recently, a United States senator just had been carjacked. According to the police who have been working on the incident, they strongly believe that the men who took off with the senator’s vehicle were after the car’s flashy and sparkling chrome rims.
It is important to note that the vehicle was the senator’s to use but it was actually owned by the United States Senate. In that sense, it means that the vehicle is entirely in good condition and so would be each and every auto part that comprises it – including the chrome rims which really attract much attention.
The chrome rims belonged to a 2006 model Dodge Charger. And the vehicle was painted in a hue of Candy Apple which even made the vehicle flashier than ever. Each chrome rim that is good condition could sell much so it is not surprising if the thieves were riveted to the vehicle.
According to the senator, the incident happened with a man who knocked on the window of his Candy Apple-painted Dodge Charger. The man held a gun and told him to get out of his own vehicle. And so the senator had no choice but to get out of his vehicle. The thief went inside and sped away with the vehicle on chrome rims.
This should be one of the disadvantages of being envied because you have a flashy and really good looking car. Others envy you and car thieves get attracted to it.
