People being stupid news item of the week

Man Steals Car to Turn Himself In

GENEVA, N.Y. (AP) — A western New York man faces grand larceny charges after being pulled over in a car that he said he stole so he could turn himself in on another charge.

Ontario County sheriff's deputies say they pulled over Vincent Estrada Junior, 29, and found that the car he was driving had recently been stolen from a parking lot.

Police said Estrada was wanted on a family court warrant, and he told deputies he stole the car so he could drive to the Geneva City Police Department to turn himself in.

But he never made it there. Deputies say they arrested him and drove him back to Canandaigua to face the car-theft charges.

Estrada was being held in Ontario County Jail on Thursday, in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.


ROFL! Just as a point of reference to anyone reading this who might need to turn themselves in because of a warrant out on them....I believe it is a much better idea to take the bus or maybe get a buddy to drive you, rather than STEAL A CAR!

    Excuse me, this really isn't any of my business, but: how did you get a hold of that article?? Is part of your daily routine reading up on what is happening in NY??
    You have to feel bad for someone like that, who doesn't have the common sense to "put the peddle to the meddle" when he sees flashing red lights. I certainly would!!

    Oh! That's hilarious!!! Did you hear about the guy that decided to hold up the karate studio with a gun? Guess he wanted to rob it or something but he never got a chance. He ended up going to the hospital. Bad thing. Trying to rob a karate studio.....
