Car thief thwarted by lack of fuel
A car thief ran out of luck when the car ran out of fuel. Police in canton Nidwalden have just released the details of a burglary and car theft in July this year. A 34 year old and another man took an Audi RS4 from a garage in Stans.
They headed out to the autoroute, but were spotted by a police patrol – who gave chase. The Audi reached speeds of up to 200 kph.
But the driver hadn’t noticed the fuel gauge was showing empty. The car came to a stop when approaching Basel.
The men were arrested.
