KS: Car Shop Owner Holds Thief at Gunpoint
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- An auto shop owner held a thief at gunpoint until police could arrive. He says the man stole a car and tried to sell off the seats.
Those high horsepower, turbocharged sports cars generally roll into Modified by KC for a tune-up. Saturday, a man came to the shop with a red Mini Cooper hoping to sell the car seats for $500.
“He didn’t fit the build for a Mini owner,” said co-owner Ryan Charlton.
He has recognized the car through posts on social media. He figured out that the man stole the Mini and is trying to sell parts off the car. Charlton played along. First, he locked up the shop.
