Car stolen from NASCAR drivers home

Police in Cornelius have released surveillance video of a car theft two weeks ago. The thieves took a car belonging to Denny Hamlin, one of NASCAR's rising stars. Video shows two men taking the black Lexus LS 460-l from the driveway. They were followed by a woman driving the car in which they had arrived. A neighbor said the burglary was especially brazen, considering the car was taken from the very back of the cul-de-sac, which is surrounded by expensive homes with a lot of security. Police hope releasing the video will help them find the people responsible.

So here is a famous person who just had his Lexus stolen in a "expensive home cul-de-sac". I like Denny Hammlin but come on, does this need to make state news. I would almost guess the Lexus was given to him from a sponsor and I am sure his bank account would not be hurt if he has to buy a new one. If his $75,000 stolen car gets put on the news, I wonder if my $8,000 truck would get put on the local news. I say my chances are about as good as winning the lottery. I know that my bank account will not allow me to run out and buy replacement. Let all go out and help the wealthy while the average suffers....
