I’m sure no one’s ever run out of gas before

True! But you can gas up in a minute or two. Thieves cooling their heels at an EV charging station with a carful of loot sounds like something out of a Greg Garcia show.

I'm waiting on a Simpson's episode where the cops have to stop and charge up their car as well and stare at the thieves across the lot.

Even Colton Harris Moore was smart enough to know that you should just steal another car instead of stopping to refuel your current stolen car.

It's still bad planning to require a refuel during the getaway.


But it's worse planning to use a car with a built in GPS that can connect to the internet.

Seems like a bunch of positives that it can keep thieves from being able to get away effectively.

You’re just giving a positive for owning electric cars

I notice that the article doesn't say how the thieves were tracked.


Teslas have a built in GPS and connect to the internet for software updates. So it's possible that the cops could have followed them home if they had remembered to charge the battery before the theft.
