It seems like quite a bit of trouble to go through just to steer clear of authorities, but we suppose this thief really wanted to hang on to this Acura.
The report states, wheels, tires and Cadillac badges were all swapped on to try and disguise the Acura as a Cadillac. However, surveillance footage gave police a name. Brandon Cox was arrested and charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, which is a state jail felony.
Unfortunately, there are no photos of what the Acura looked like with the Cadillac parts on it, but we imagine it would stick out like a sore thumb to anyone who knows a thing or two about cars.
