Funny, I never realized there was any difference between most tow truck drivers and car thieves. How could you tell? They're both probably taking the cars to mob-owned rackets, whether it's the tow yard or the chop shop.

Alonjar: Yeah.. I always thought simply towing a car away would be the best way of stealing it. Especially with those repo ones that just pull up and drive away in like 20 seconds flat.

Even better: tow/steal cars that legitimately are illegally parked etc.

Bad idea. The state doesn't give two shiats if you take property from mundanes, but if you start doing that, you're depriving the state of revenue, and they will come down on you like hellfire.

This is becoming more common as more and more cars have "immobilizer" systems which make it nearly impossible to start the car without a key. Thieves just get hold of a tow truck, drive up to the target vehicle, and take it away.

That isn't new at all. Stolen dealer plates is another one that gets used a lot.
