The West Australian - - INSIDE COVER -

Last week IC re­ported a brazen car theft had been caught on cam­era, with a pair of crooks steal­ing a white 1968 Chevy Im­pala from the drive­way of its owner’s Crimea Street res­i­dence in Mor­ley.

The Im­pala owner wasn’t home at the time but a neigh­bour no­ticed the clas­sic car be­ing hoisted on to a trailer be­hind a white Ford Ter­ri­tory, and snapped a pic, which was then shared in the Perth Clas­sic Car Spotto Face­book group.

How­ever, the crooks weren’t to­tal mis­an­thropes — they put witches hats in front of their ve­hi­cle dur­ing the theft to warn on­com­ing cars of the ob­sta­cle.

We’re not sure that small ges­ture will count for much in a court of law, which is where who­ever stole the Im­pala may end up, af­ter po­lice found the Im­pala last week.

It was found in a shed in Mirra­booka, where the thieves had been at­tempt­ing to change the car’s colour us­ing cans of black spray paint.

To do that to a clas­sic car is a crime in it­self, if you ask us.
