What do you do when your 17 and tire of your high school friends dising your oh so “stodgy” three year old BMW M3? Simple, commit insurance fraud and attempt to upgrade to a Bentley.
SEATTLE, Washington – A 17 year-old high school student faked the theft of his 2002 BMW M3 in order to collect insurance money to upgrade to a Bentley, police said on Thursday.
The teen, a student of Skyline High School in Sammamish, a suburb of Seattle, had reported the car stolen earlier this week, said Michael Chiu, a spokesman for the police in Bellevue, another suburb located between Seattle and Sammamish.
Police in another town found the $47,000 BMW being stripped and arrested four suspects, who connected the teen to the theft, leading to his arrest.
“That investigation led us to believe that he wanted to upgrade to a Bentley,” Chiu said.
Commiting the crime certainly stupid enough, but you have to question this punks math skills. Bentleys have a suggested retail price of $160,000 for the Continental GT coupe and $240,000 for the Arnage sedan.
Does that suggest he had from 3-5 more M3’s lined up for theft to pay for his coveted Bentley? Doubtful, he’s just shtuuuupid! And his mother needs her head examined for allowing a teenager access to a $50,000 dollar vehicle for transport to and from school.
