Car Thief Blames Coronavirus for Crime

Share with friends

In St. Petersburg, Fl., 70-year-old Alvin Rementer pawned his 2000 Chevy Silverado to a local pawn shop for $1,500 back in January. Last Saturday, at about 7:00 AM, Rementer attempted to steal the car back with his spare key.

An officer witnessed this and pulled Rementer over. He admitted to his wrongdoing, saying that he only did it because he was “freaked out over the corona and the overall situation.” Alvin Rementer was arrested and charged with felony grand theft auto.
