A NEW Zealand man who stole a car from a petrol station while drunk, later called the cops to report a strange vehicle ‘‘ abandoned’’ in front of his Queenstown home. The hapless thief was charged. The man allegedly stole the car while its owner was paying for petrol. He claims a night out at an engagement party left him with no memory of the crime. Constable Jason Read said when the man woke up, he rang police and asked them to move the car.
