When a Navy man woke up early on Thursday, April 21, at the Mariner's Cove Apartments, he noticed his car was not where he had left it the previous evening. When he went out to the parking lot to look for it, along came his car, driven by a young black man.
As he parked the car, the military man ran over and confronted the thief, who immediately began to make excuses before running off to the back of the complex. The Navy man called the police on his cell phone.
Upon arrival, police took a report. The description of the joy-rider sounded like a particular trouble-making resident to several of the people who were watching the scene unfold: the Navy man had commented that the kid who stole his car had "man boobs."
When the Navy man went to drive his car later that day, he looked down on the floor and found the thief’s wallet, including his picture ID.
