If you steal a car and try to sell it, don’t you think that the good people at CarMax will check the CarFax vehicle report to see if it’s stolen before they take it in trade?
(Suspect 1), 35, of Orangeburg, S.C., and (Suspect 2), 34, of Raleigh showed up at CarMax with the stolen gold Lincoln on Monday, according to Raleigh police. The two men hoped to leave with a Mercedes ML-350 SUV, according to arrest warrants.
Detectives arrested the two about 2 a.m. Tuesday. They found that (Suspect 1) had a string of aliases, including (Alias for Suspect 1), and that under that name he was wanted by New York on a felony drug charge and also is wanted in Somerset County, N.J.
What a pair of winners. Suspect 1 is from out of State, but what about Suspect 2?
Cops found a gun, cocaine, and a near terminal case of the stupids. Life is hard. It’s even harder when you are stupid.
