LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — A California girl referred to as police to report her auto had been stolen Saturday and was perplexed to understand that it had been towed for becoming parked in entrance of a fireplace hydrant — because which is not exactly where she still left it.
Surveillance video clip shows a massive rig driver trying to make a tight convert into the driveway of a close by property in the North Hills community of Los Angeles. Then the driver can be witnessed going into Alma Ordonez’s unlocked automobile and steering it while an additional human being pushes it from driving.
The pair still left the automobile in front of the hydrant. A number of hours later, the town ticketed it and towed it away.
“You just cannot just shift people’s autos,” Ordonez said. “This is L.A. There’s parking troubles all over the place. I mean if you can do that, can you envision, in the town, everybody just shifting people’s cars and trucks to park?”
LAPD stated the criminal offense could finish in a misdemeanor charge if they can capture the men and women who moved the vehicle. As for Ordonez, the metropolis waived the payment for the ticket, but to get the $400 towing price again, she would have to go to tiny claims court.
Ordonez said this is the second time this has happened to her. The previous time was two many years in the past.
“I would consider that thieving, correct, when somebody receives in your motor vehicle and moves it,” she reported. “But the LAPD mentioned no, which is just someone shifting your car or truck without your consent.”
