BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Note to alleged car thieves: you’re going to get caught.
That message was apparently not received by Boca (or Mississippi’s) Andrew Bailey, who is facing a grand theft auto charge from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office after he apparently couldn’t come up with a believable story when a deputy stopped him for driving a stolen car.
Read the complete police report by downloading it, below, but here’s the Cliff’s Notes version:
Bailey was stopped on Powerline near Palmetto Park Road. Bailey was told his car had been reported stolen. Bailey, according to the report, acknowledged that it wasn’t his car but was in fact his sister’s. Police called his sister who sold him out, saying it wasn’t her car and that in fact Bailey arrived in Florida, from Mississippi, with the vehicle. Get this: the sister said she gave him money to buy.
Bailey provided another story or two but the Deputy didn’t like any of them. He arrested Andrew Bailey and charged him with driving a stolen vehicle with a stolen tag.
