A victimless crime.

Well, you can rent them. I don't know who exactly to call, but a quick Google will find you somebody in your region that will rent you anything between a shovel and a kidney.

I'm surprised RR aren't only capable of being activated by retina scan, or voluntary valet anal swab to prevent such hijinks by the unwashed masses

Who wants to drive a Rolls Royce?

I thought the entire point of owning a Rolls Royce is being rich enough to also be able to afford a chauffeur to drive you around.

Rolls Royce? That's like the Cadillac of cars!

A real Duesy, for sure.

The owner of the vehicle, identified only as John, told the Staten Island Advance that he was able to turn the tables on the burglars by using a remote kill switch

Damn! biatchin!

to turn the luxury ride off,

Oh.

Nothing in this world is more expensive than a cheap RR.

I've seen plenty driven by their owners. One of them gave me his daily script for his Chips reboot at a stoplight when I gave him a thumbs up and waved. Erik was big on water conservation , even in 98 / 99 , as his car was filthy.

What say next time John turns the tables on the robbers by not leaving the keys in the car?

One suspect was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the word "Kappa" on it, while another was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with letters on the front.

The article from Yahoo makes the New York Post look like hard-hitting journalism:

https://nypost.com/2022/06/22/nyc-man-snatches-back-stolen-400k-rolls-royce-on-staten-island/

TL;DR: the guy first checked to make sure his family was safe before using his computer to activate the kill switch. The article doesn't mention it, but I would hope he also called the cops first.

He probably lives on the west side of the island, if the thief was able to get into NJ so quickly. I'm just wondering if the author of the original article said Newark instead of some lesser-known city to the south.

Meh. Did it legally a few decades ago, around the block a few times. It's just a rolling lounge.

/i'd love to have that kind of sound-deadening though
//have stripped out entire interiors before and cladded deadening stickies all over the place. kinda works.

You spoiled it. I was perfectly happy believing the thieves pushed the car from the driveway to New Jersey.

I haven't looked in a long while, but it used to be that it was very easy to find used Rolls' for extremely cheap. Like under $10G's. Turns out that a lot of people thought it would be a good idea to buy them used because hey, cheap Rolls Royce, and then didn't think to consider how much it costs to take them in for maintenance. Nothing like a few-thousand-dollar quote for routine service to encourage reconsideration of ownership.

We don't have the exact timeline, so it's still possible.
