"Let's Take It For a Spin, No One Will Notice"

There have been some strange news stories about odd occurrences during funerals, but this is a new one on me. You just know that the thief (or thieves) only wanted to do this for the sake of doing it. How far was he/she going to get with a big limousine? And stealing the thing from outside a church while mourners are inside makes it extra super-duper bad.

A while back, a man was arrested at the end of a gravesite funeral service (for a family member, if I recall correctly) by waiting police officers for failure to pay child support. At least the cops showed dignity and respect by allowing the services to conclude before performing their duty. But the criminal element knows nothing of honor. The least they could have done is waited until after the service and stolen the limo from the cemetery.
