These two have to be the dumbest car thieves ever:
A Deltona woman, forced to take public transportation after thieves stole her car, helped deputies capture the suspects when she saw the pilfered ride buzz by her bus window. Cara McSweeney reported her car stolen from her West Page Drive home Friday in Deltona. But six hours later, she called 9-1-1 from a bus to report seeing the stolen black 2002 Saturn traveling west on Saxon Boulevard in Orange City, according to a Volusia County sheriff’s report.
A Volusia County sheriff’s deputy responding to the call spotted the vehicle and followed it into Deltona, leading to two arrests and the solving of several burglaries, said Gary Davidson, sheriff’s spokesman. The occupants of the stolen car, driver Aaron Hosack and passenger Amber Jones, were arrested. Jones, 20, had two of the victim’s bank cards on her, while Hosack was driving on a suspended license and also had several bank cards taken in another vehicle burglary in Deltona, Davidson said.
Hosack, 29, initially lied about the stolen car, said Davidson, but Jones told investigators that the two were breaking into vehicles in the Deltona area when Hosack came across the black Saturn, unlocked and with the keys inside.
The two got in and drove off, with Hosack behind the wheel, deputies said. They then drove to New Smyrna Beach to try to buy drugs, but when they couldn’t find any, they broke into a house there and stole property that included a laptop computer, a printer and a flat screen T.V., Davidson said. Hosack, of Orange City, was charged with grand theft, two counts of burglary, dealing in stolen property, driving with a suspended license, petty theft and three counts of possessing stolen credit cards. Jones, of Osteen, was charged with grand theft, two counts of burglary, petty theft, dealing in stolen property and two counts of possessing stolen credit cards.
