Unlucky Thief Has Getaway Car Repossessed During Robbery
In August of last year, the Chicago Tribune reported that a Zion, Illinois, man had his car repossessed at a very inopportune time. Che Hearn, 25 years old, had planned to use the vehicle to carry about $300 worth of stolen electronics away from the Walmart store at 2680 N. Route 83. Unfortunately for Hearn, agents of a vehicle repossession company had tailed him to the store, and when he went inside, they quickly towed his car from the store lot. When he emerged from the store, carrying a shopping basket full of hot merchandise, his car was gone. A Walmart employee then confronted Hearn, who dropped the basket and left the parking lot on foot. Police later apprehended him walking by the side of the road. He has been charged with misdemeanor theft involving merchandise of less than $300 value.
