This past Tuesday, April 20th, the police of Solon, Ohio received a call about a stolen Cadillac Escalade. As it turned out, the Escalade was no ordinary Caddy. Instead, it was an electric replica sold as a toy for children.
Evidently, the victim’s son drove the toy across the street and left it in the neighbor’s driveway while playing basketball with the residents. Then, according to the mother of the toy Escalade driver, a flatbed landscaping truck pulled in front of the residence, stopped for a moment, and the next thing she saw is the truck driving away with the Escalade on the flatbed.
Unsurprisingly, police were unable to locate the stolen Caddy, valued at $458.
The GM Authority Take
Solon police is asking those with details of the whereabouts of the stolen faux-Caddy to contact them immediately. After we bought him some smoothie at the Orange Julius stand, the lead investigator of the case told us that the toy truck has the words Pimp Daddy inscribed on the windshield, and is riding on 20-inch rims that don’t stop.
Too bad it didn’t have OnStar. Also, poor kid.
