Texas Woman Pretends That Ford F-250 Is Hers, Has It Towed To Home

Ford F-250

We’ve all seen at least one vehicle in our lifetimes that we wished was ours. Maybe it was a cool car or truck sitting in a parking lot somewhere, or just a general new vehicle that we lust after. But at the same time, these wishes remain just that – wishes, at least until we’re in a position to actually buy said vehicle. But that wasn’t the case with a woman in Laredo, Texas recently, who simply decided to have a Ford F-250 that belonged to someone else towed to her house.

That’s one way to get what one wants, we suppose, but it also isn’t exactly a legal way to do so. According to local news source LMT Online, it all went down when a man called police to report a stolen vehicle. He noticed that his white rental Ford F-250 had been stolen at 8:05 in the morning. Luckily, a witness had seen the whole thing go down, and told police that the Super Duty was picked up by a tow truck overnight.

Laredo police department investigators took over the case, and were quickly able to contact the tow company and figure out what had happened. Apparently, a woman called them and asked to have the Ford Super Duty towed to her residence, claiming that she owned it. The tow company obliged, obviously, and the rest is history.

The woman was quickly arrested and charged with theft of property in what might be one of the dumber crimes we’ve heard of lately. Apparently, she didn’t think that anyone would put two and two together and figure out this little mystery, which was a terrible assumption. But at least it gives us a new and somewhat humorous method of vehicle theft to laugh at, we suppose.

    • Yeah that smells fishy.
      I’d be raking that company over the coals in court. You don’t just tow a car without some proof of ownership and the registration would have had the rental company’s name on it.

      • Other than the key, I’ve never shown proof of ownership when I’ve had a car towed to a shop. I’ve never shown proof of ownership when I’ve locked keys in a car, either.

  1. Tremor package?? Where did it say that in the story? The pics shown are simply stock pics. That was a dumb statement. Simply another way to start rumors without proof.

  2. Remember! We all learn something every day! Hopefully she did too! And don’t be too hard on the the tow company. Trust, makes life beautiful and pleasant, distrust makes life miserable. Even if you get bit a few times.🙂

  3. And here i am paying several thousand dollars cash for a car like a sucker when i could have just had someone else’s car towed to my house for FREE!! Doh!!!

    • You could have just said neighbors across the street. Like how in the article they didn’t specify and description other than Laredo Woman, because it’s not relevant to the story. (Non-english speaking) is irrelevant. And if they were doing anything as dumb as this article it would have been found out very quickly.

    • Ronald, you know damn well that when they charge a woman for any crime, the Captain-save-a-ho cops and courts downgrade the charges!
      Society views all women as victims and all men as violent criminals.

    • Most women lean left…..gotta have those entitled female-only safety nets like welfare, section 8 and free healthcare!

    • So what if she is a Biden supporter. U can be a supporter of whom u choose. Much better than supporting that ass hole of whatever u want to call him because he don’t know how to be no president.

      • And your wonderful child and woman rapist is even better? Hell our president has done more for this country than your wonderful dementia wannabe president has ever done. He brought more jobs back than your left handed jack off side has ever done. He’s built the wall for loser criminals to stay out and he’s trying to clean up our country. Now, where is the loser in this whole scenario? This worthless lady, Biden, and you.

        • It’s people like you don’t know what the f*** you be talkin about stop bringing politics into everything because evidently you don’t know what the f*** you talkin about Trump haven’t done anything for this f****** country but made it worse you idiot

  4. This is very common and has happened to my family 3 times. The tow truck driver is usually a small outfit and they are usually in on it to a degree. They should be fully charged as well.

  5. What a hell of a thing that half of you ladies and gents are replying back and forth, come on people let’s keep it together and act your ages, keep the comments clean, there is enough desention in this old world now, this trash I am reading posted by you all here is very tasteless and I am ashamed to have let my son seen some of your answers to towed pickup, I am a very proud vet and am ashamed of the way the USA has turned out, and the way people here are projecting themselves to the world, I am ashamed of myself for going abroad and fighting to protect the people and land that I once loved, may God has mercy on all of your sole’s as the devil sure as hell won’t. If a person wants respect and to be treated like you are someone, then get off your ass, go to work, take care of your responsibility’s like a grown up, and try to dress and act like a grown up, and earn your own damn respect, that’s what is wrong with younger people today, they think that they are entitled to a should be handed the world on a silver platter, and not have to do anything to get it, I am ashamed of the whole country as a whole right now, and I mean all political parties and all races of people no matter who you are or where you are from, if you are a american and claim to be, get your shit together and pull your damn pants up, they are meant to be worn up around your waist to cover your ass not to be worn around your ankles, then run your hands down your pants and play with yourself, grow the hell up people, have some pride in the fact that you are an american citizen, hold your head up and act like you have some class. Try that shit for once if you want rest of the world to respect you. Earn it, every life matters, you stand for flag and kneel for the cross, are have you people forgotten that, I feel sorry for the younger generation as a whole right now, for when the last bit of us old people are dead and gone, you will ruin this ole planet and perish as you all younger generation of people think you are entitled to everything and should get all you want free and easy, and if not, hell y’all will just steal, other hard working people’s property and loot there businesses and burn your own damn towns, cause life hasn’t been handed over to you for free and no one has fed you with a gold spoon, and changed your diaper and popped a tit in your mouths, get your crap together people, life is short and I pity y’all, but I will not give up on all of you, I pray daily for all of our sole’s and tell myself that this is the greatest country in the world ànd we have to make it happen, it won’t be free are easy and will take all of us to make it happen, but damnit people have some pride in yourself and grow some backbone and men grow some balls, no wonder the rest of the world thinks we’re getting weak, stand up be a man and protect your family and friends and country, then you will have the respect that you so crave, but you will have to earn it, are you will never get respected, take care of our women and children as was expected of each man here, and protect our country and our interest all over the world, that is your job people, now if you want all this, The time to get off your asses and go get that respect back is upon us, talks cheap, show me there is still some men with backbone here in the US, I don’t want to die knowing that we are not the respected and most feared country in the world as we once were, and should be now and forever. Everything will be ok but only when we stand together as one, and then we will own the world again and be respected and looked to as the people’s champion’s throughout the world, and and to reach it again just gonna take hard work, and some blood, sweat and tears, so now is the time to stand up, clean up, and show the world what it means to be an american citizen, and how to act as one too, you burnt your damn towns and neighborhoods down and stole from your neighbor’s, and robbed the businesses there, now you want the government to fix it all pretty again, screw that, get off your asses and go get it fixed back up, you broke it, you can fix it, when you All go out to protest, as you say, take your tools with you and try using them to repair your damn messes up, you created them, fix them all back up, and replace the money and property you have stolen while you were protesting as you say, and I will tell you, not just black lives matter, all do, stop whining and crying in your cereal,, earn your respect and trust, it is not free and or going to be easy and will not be just handed over to you on a silver platter, and if that is the way you want it, your in for a long wait, act your ages not your IQ.. show me something, then you will have my respect and help forever, but my friendship and respect aren’t going to be cheap or easy to earn, but when you get it as with anyone’s, you will be proud of it and respect your own self then, as you earned it yourself and then you will truly know what pride and respect is. And you will then also make and have friends for life, show your children and families how to conduct themselves at all times, as expected of each and every american citizen.

  6. Tow company’s fault. No key present, check registration, than truck only goes to a Ford dealership. Anything fishy, call cops. Been there done that.
