There has been a car parked outside our house since Friday Afternoon. It's Sunday Night now. I didn't think much of it for around a day, as I thought someone might be visiting our neighbors or something. However, when the car hasn't even been touched then I decided to take a closer look at it. I looked inside the car through the windows and there was nothing there. No books or anything like that. The radio also was ripped out. I then looked at the front of the car and found out the car had expired around a month ago. You could tell because of the sticker at the top of the car. We asked if the neighbours knew anything about it, but they had no idea and thought that maybe someone was visiting us. I called up the police and they said "Don't worry, if it stays longer than a week then you can contact us." I told them I thought it might be stolen and that's why I decided to call them up and report the incident. I gave them the number plate of the car and they searched it up on there system. The result showed that the car has been missing for over one month. I'm glad I ended up calling the police. I can't believe that there are actually people who steal cars around where I live, or why else would they drop it infront of my house? I totally hate car stealers! And the police weren't even bothered to check if the car was stolen or not until I told them too! Has a similar situation ever happened to you? What would you think about police acting this way towards a possible crime? What would you do if you were in this situation? I'd love to hear from you!

Hi pweety, what you've done was a good action. If that happened to me, im gonna call the police too. But so far, i never had a situation like that. Maybe the thief were in trouble, that's why they just left the car in front of your house and escape.

Thankfully you were a concerned person who was willing to be persistent in the idea that they check. Isn't it sad that they get paid, but we have to tell them how to do their job?

You did the right thing. I haven't heard about car stealer in my area so far and I am thankful for that. We had previous case where a car parked near a grocery for a long time and there are people inside waiting. It was scary but my villagers noticed them fast (we're small community, almost everyone know everybody) So the people inside the knew we start suspecting something. They never show up again. I wonder what they're up to but I am glad they're gone too.
