My husband saw the entire situation. He was standing outside. The guys stole an car in the parking lot. My husband said that they drove the car and then crashed into another car, then they crashed into the fence. The fence that they have crashed into was the fence of a nursing home. They then took off on foot. My husband said that the police may have arrested one of the young guys. And this situation gets even worse. It happened right near us. The nursing home was has the stolen car in it. The car was reported stolen already. So this car was parked in this parking lot. We all are still trying to figure out who actually, stole the car in the first place. This is all a big mess! So the car was stolen twice. My husband thought that the one of the guys was teaching the other guy how to drive. But, I guess not.

Wow.. you experience a lot of strange activity. Glad, the cops were able to arrest one guy and from that guy they will probably get the others. Hope they clear up the entire incident because that stolen car has been in your apartment complex the entire time! Freaky.. and drove into a fence at a nursing home - do they even know how to drive? Lol.

Wow, sadly this is happening all over the world where thieves decide it is funny to cause havoc. Not taking into account tall the damage and perhaps danger they may cause along the way. I hope they get caught and learn a lesson as perhaps the elders in the nursing home got a bit shaken up from all the racket.

This is a big mess all right! I doubt that anybody could be teaching anybody how to drive! I hope none of the nursing home residents were out there and none of them were hurt! I know youall will be so happy to get away from there! I know I would be!

I think car being stolen happens everywhere, I have got my car stolen before and until now have got no news about my car at all. There was once, just next to my house (I am staying in a terrace house) there was a car parked there for months and no one drive it out to anywhere ever since the owners (actually the thief) left the house. I did not know that it was a loss car until one day a police man ask me about my this neighbor. The policeman told me that it is actually a loss car reported few months ago from about 100km away from here. We will never know who actually our neighbor are either they are good people or the bad guys.

Oh my! GTA 4 happening in real life??? LOL! Alright, now your husband is the key witness. Have you asked him whether there are any cctv cameras around to catch the footage? If there is, then the nursing home will be in less trouble coz there are two advantages, provided that there really are cameras or that your husband has used his phone's camera to catch the footage. Oh god, I can't believe people nowadays are so daring!

It is shocking to learn and know that young ones are now being too dangerous and delinquent. These young guys are lost and lack guidance from parents perhaps. They think, the best way to have money is doing the illegal or unlawful act. At their very young age and knows how to steal is not a good habit. These kids have the tendency to be a potential criminal.

What a couple of idiots! And running into a nursing home. Ugh! That area you live in is definitely a who's who of idiots. I wonder why this particular van was so popular that it was stolen twice. I am such a curious person these type of details would drive me crazy. I should have been a detective.

hi cream they sound like thugs without much brains, crashing into the fence likethat and into another car. Perhaps they were drunk or stoned out of their minds. I am glad there were not any children out there playing.lol he might have been teaching the other one how to drive but he sure was not a very good teacher. I am so glad for you and your family that you will be moving out of this place. too wild for families with small children.just think if one of the patients from the nursing home was outside and those goons hit him or her that would really have been a disaster, good luck and God bless.

First of all, why didn't your husband call the police when this robbery was taking place? I wouldn't have just stood there and watch a couple of guys steels a van. Our society is corrupt and many crimes take place, although I will admit that crime is good in the sense that it helps our economy,still they should be reproted by common people. I have seen many situations on tv where a girl was kidnapped or assaulted and people just walked by like nothing was happening. Some people are afraid to get involved into anything because what people value the most id their own well- being. Anyways hopefully the situation you mentioned gets figured out.

Hi. m_perez. When I said that my husband saw the entire thing. I am not saying that he knew what was going on at first. He had saw the two guys get into the car. They did not look like they were breaking in the car at all. They drove off and that is when he noticed how they were driving. They crashed. He did give the police officers his cellphone number in case they needed him to give more information. He was trying to explain what he had saw at the accident scene but the police officers acted as if they did not want to hear what he had to say. They were so engrossed with what had happened. You have got it all completely misunderstood here. If we see something going on, you best believe that we will call the police.

well it's obvious that I would have gotten the whole thing messed up since you didn't mention or infer in any way that your husband had called the police. You just mentioned that they were there.

Hi. m_perez. I guess that is why it is always best to ask a question than to just assume something. You will be able to get the correct and accurate answer then. Don't you think?
