The 1980s weren’t exactly a high point for the automotive industry. Fuel restrictions cut power, and design during this time fell to an all-time low for many mass produced cars. That’s why it seems ever so strange that a 1980 Cadillac DeVille has been stolen not once, not twice, but five times over the last five years.
Retired Rev. Edward Moore says the car has been stolen each time from an assisted living center for senior citizens in San Antonio, Texas, according to local KSAT12
This time, the car was found on an empty tank of gas, and Moore had to pay to have the car towed to a gas station. He also needs to use a screw driver to start the 1980 Cadillac DeVille since the steering column, which has been replaced before, has been smashed open yet again during the theft.
Police have said it’s not uncommon for the same car to be stolen again, and again, especially from the same location. Moore has gone to the extremes by leaving the battery out of the car, but thieves have only installed another to take the car.
The assisted living community has invited local police to view their security footage in an effort to catch whoever is responsible.
