‘Big dummy’ swipes FBI vehicle from carwash

CINCINNATI, OH — After a three-week SUV joyride, a court stands ready to sentence a carwash car thief. That is, if they can find him.

CINCINNATI, OH — A car thief here will be sentenced for stealing an FBI SUV from a carwash last December as soon as police can catch him, Cincinnati.com reported.

The June 12 story stated that Lloyd Sill, 40, was at the Parkway Auto Wash on Dec. 12 of last year when he jumped into a 2010 GMC Acadia that had just emerged from the wash. The door was open and the keys were in vehicle.

But this wasn’t the typical family cruiser. Instead, it belonged to the FBI. “It had police emergency lights in it. It had an FBI radio in it and an FBI jacket in it,” Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor Micheal Peck said in the story. “This idiot knew exactly what he was doing. He’s just a big dummy.”

After Sill drove away, he stole license plates from another vehicle and put them on the SUV. It took police three weeks to catch up with Sill, and when they finally did he was still driving the SUV.

He was charged with and convicted of three counts of stolen property, and he was supposed to be sentenced this week. But, the bumbling thief was a no-show. When he is caught again, Sill will face punishment from probation to three and a-half years in prison.
