Man Steals Car to Get to Car Thievery Hearing
You’d think that stealing a car and getting caught would be enough to make you think twice about stealing a car in the future. But that was not the case for Timothy Frederick Knight, a 53-year-old from San Francisco.
Knight, a man with seven prior convictions, was arrested last February for possession of a stolen car. After his arrest, his preliminary hearing was set for the beginning of April. Just a few days prior to the hearing, Knight somehow found himself in possession of yet another stolen vehicle, upon which police placed a tracker in order to find the thief. Lo and behold, Knight was caught on April 3rd driving the stolen car to a preliminary hearing about another stolen car.
Knight’s court hearing was postponed, and he was picked up by police as he returned to the car upon dismissal from the courthouse. He is now being held on $165,000 bail, and faces up to eight years in prison after agreeing to a plea deal.
We can only hope that he doesn’t decide to steal a car to get him home once he is released from jail sometime next decade.
