Here's one for the books...


ANDREW  ZALEWSKI PLEADS GUILTY TO STEALING CAR KEYS, THEN CARS

He took keys from a train yard full of new cars, then tracked the keys down to people's homes
...


http://autos.aol.com/article/andrew-zalewski-pleads-guilty-to-stealing-car-keys-then-cars/


"Police have charged Andrew Zalewski with breaking into homes, stealing luxury cars, and conspiring to steal another $5 million worth of vehicles, according to CTV News. They discovered he and his accomplice, Damien Kaleta, were breaking into cargo containers at a train yard, and stealing one key from the pair of new keys that come with the car. They'd also take down the car's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and use that to track down the car later when it had been sold.


Police said Zalewski had about $5 million in Canadian dollars worth of cars he could have potentially stolen. Zalewski pleaded guilty to the charges this week, and faces sentencing in February.


The Canadian police suggest car buyers always insist the dealer give you two keys: "There's no reason you should be receiving a vehicle with one key, and if you have, please contact your dealership and express your concerns," Detective Constable Valdy Krawczyk told CTV. CTV posted a video on Zalewski's court date here."

Your stolen vehicle will become a recovered vehicle without the need of your help. I have recovered many vehicles and never once was there a registered owner attempting to assist.

Look im not really trying to be a pest but im on the trail of who did this. caught someone attempting to break into my aunts house wich is exactly across the street from my house. i cant say if its teh one who took my car but my house keys were in my car and since he had all my info i think he meant to go to my house but went to my aunts instead. thats just speculation but that my theory. sorry that yall dont like that im actively doing what i can but like i sad before if i find any info i give it to the police just as i did today i stayed on the phone with disaptch the whole time till he was put in handcuffs sorry that im doing what i can to help, i dont think i should be condenmed for it. he looked suspicious and somewhat fit the description of what my stepdad said he looked like so i followed him in my truck and saw him trying to break into my uants house. he also had a few warrants so he will be in jail long for a few weeks which will give my detective time to talk to him.

kevinroy.........  You are right.  Keep looking for and investigating the case of the stolen Kia.  Sounds like you will have this and every other crime in your community solved before the police.  In fact, you may want to contact the mayor of your city.  He could save a whole lot of money if he got rid of the city police department and hired you...... You have been told in no uncertain terms, by several very experienced police officers and sheriff's deputies here on PL (including myself) to lighten up and let the police do their jobs and not actively involve yourself in attempting to locate your vehicle.  Your persistence lends itself to two areas.


1) You are in fact becoming the pest, not only here but also to the department you filed your stolen vehicle report with.


2) Your persistence lends itself to being teased a bit.


My comment was meant as a joke.  I am sorry that you did not take it that way.  That said, I make no apologies and stand by what I said in all of my previous posts.  STOP already with your own investigation into the crime you reported.  You did your job by reporting it, now let the police do theirs.  They will call you when they find it regardless the condition that it will be found in.  If you persist, you may find yourself into something so deep, you will not be able to get your fleshy hindquarters out of, no matter how careful you say you are being.  You posted a pic of your fiancee'........ Nice couple the two of you make, but I don't think she will be quite so happy if something you did because of this persistence, got you hurt.  STOP ALREADY....... BEFORE YOU GET YOURSELF HURT and we get to say that we told you so.  Instead of spending your energy looking for your car, start looking for its possible replacement should the car turn up totalled / torched / stripped or is never found.  By now you should have cancelled your debit card and ordered a new one.  That way, no one can make any unauthorized purchases.  If you haven't done this yet, do it now....... before you become the victim of yet another crime because of your persistence and carelessness.

im not sure what youre problem is but i feel you are out of line. you say my actions are bad yet what i did led to the arrest of a man with multple warrants who was in the middle of commiting a crime. are you saying i should have let him continue with what he was doing? let him break into a house where there are chilrden? (although they were gone at that time). because of my actions that was stopped who kows what could have happened if it wasnt for me doing what i did!

Kevin, being a concerned citizen and calling in a crime in progress is one thing. Becoming "actively involved" in a felony investigation as a victim (your stolen car) is another thing. Nobody here is telling you not to call in suspicious activity. What they are telling you, is to not become involved in searching for your car. Have you: Contacted your insurance company; changed the locks on your house; cancelled your debit/credit cards? Let the Authorities investigate your stolen car and follow up on the leads. If you learn of something (unauthorized use of your debit card, for example), pass it on to them. Then back off and wait for a phone call. It's OK to check periodically with the Detectives for updates (once or twice a week), but keep in mind: while you are speaking with them, you are taking them away from investigating crimes assigned to them.


A car is a car. It can be replaced. You cannot be.


Last but not least. If you happen to come across your car, DO NOT JUMP IN IT AND DRIVE OFF!!! Call the jurisdiction where it is and let them recover it. I cannot tell you how many times I have pulled vehicle owners out of the car at gun-point because they were in a stolen car.


Be patient.

thanks that was a good way of putting it direct, but not rude. yeah if i find my car im not going ot jump in it who knows whats in it and i would ruin their whole case if i did that. what you said is what im doing i reported to them oncei noticed the unauthorized debit tranaction. ive only contacted them when i feel i have something new to add. i have not been calling every day where is my car because i understand they work on many cases at once. im not really sure what today was. i just felt something off about this person even though he wasnt doing anything at the time but i felt i needed to trail him. once i noticed him doing something illegal i contacted police. i didnt bug hte police asking if he had anything to do with my car because i know the detective will ask when he has time next week. everythign has been cancelled so i should be goood concerning my money although my SS card was in the car but have reported that as well. most of my investigating has been just cruising in my truck up and down streets just seeing if i can spot my car or looking through my debit and hpone list to see if he used my phone but other than tht ive tried staying out of their way. the detictive has been great and told me quite clear what my bounderies are concerning the investigation and i have crossed any lines or atleast not with him.

That's Excellent Kevin!


Pretty good police work on the Detectives/Local LE's part. Officers are not allowed to accept gratuities, but a (spell-checked) letter showing your appreciation would make a LEO's day ya know?  Remember when you arrive at the Precinct Involved, that these Officers work 24-7 and may be stand-offish due to a heavy amount of calls.  Don't take that personal, but I would def let them know their service is appreciated.


Best of Luck.

What unusual good luck, Kevin! 


Just look at the facts:


1.  The victim exits his 12K vehicle, leaving the ignition keys and his wallet for a short time. 


2.  The victim's father witnesses the suspect getting in the car.  The victim and his father witness him driving away.


3.  The victim reports the theft to local police.  He also announces the theft in a Forum Topic on a highly public LE career/social website .  He asks for help in his personal investigation and expresses a lack of confidence in police efforts.  LEOS admonish the victim not to take the investigation into his own hands.


4.  The victim discovers his debit card has been used to send money to or to make calls from 'somebody in jail.'  He reports it to the detective then states in Forums he knows the detective will make the calls the following week "when he has time."


5.  The victim then clarifies the fact of a stolen wallet to readers in Forums.


6.  Meanwhile the victim continues to comb the streets looking for the vehicle.


5.  The victim then announces in Forums the car is recovered in good condition.  No further details.


I wonder what's next??

Victim spots a B & E which leads cops to arrest a bad guy with warrants, or did that happen already ????

Refer to my previous post on your investigation, Kevin!  Looks like the suspect is off the streets now.  What were the other warrants he had out on him?  Also, I'm curious to know how many children were in danger and what their ages are?

ages were all under 10, the car is a 25k car and the keys were not in the ignition furthermore i never felt that LEOs are incompitent in fact i would like to be a police officer. i just knew they work on mltiple cases at once so i did what i could to make it easier for them. the detective that found the man didnt say what his warrants were for so i couldnt say.

It seems odd that no kittens were saved from a certain death during any of this? I'm waiting to hear if the cure for cancer was found scribbled on a Hooter's napkin crumpled up on the vehicle's floorboard...

kevinroy,  I am happy that you got your car back undamaged, but I have little sympathy for you.  The keyless ignition is a very good anti-theft system, you can't 'hot wire' the ignition or pop the steering column and start it that way.  You not only left your car unlocked, but left the key fob and your billfold in the car.  The only thing you neglected to do is put a  "PLEASE STEAL ME"  sign on the car.  You were a victim of what is called a 'theft of opportunity' where  someone could steal your car who was probably only planning originally on taking your wallet, which you had left for anyone to take in an unlocked car.  D on't try and tell me how safe your neighborhood normally is, even if it is posted "Thieves keep out" they ignore the signs.  I hope you have learned your lessen, the best anti-theft equipment cannot overcome human stupidy.

And there you have it, Kevin.  The full spectrum of the LEO assessment of your story - from MH557 to Cedardale.


Which makes you one H@LL of a lucky man, a total idiot, and/or a liar of the first order.  Keeping in mind that none of these characteristics are mutually exclusive of one another.


I leave it to you to decide who is the more generous. 


PEACE OUT.

Cedardale. Speaking of anti-theft device. Geo Metro has a new anti-theft device. There making the letters taller.


 



Hey what is wrong with a Geo Metro. 50+ miles to the gallon and goes 80 MPH+ and hauls lots of big men and lunch boxes can't all be bad. LOL Had  one when I worked at the mine nad put 120000 miles on it. My father-in-law still drives it and it is going great. Replaced the water pump 2X and that is about it other than an exhaust system as my son drove it on gravel roads and crushed it flat. LOL it still ran just not well with it being plugged up.


so lets give the Geo a break LOL they should make them again.


Bad stuff happens to good people, handle it and overcome.
My motto for life:
Let go and let GOD,
Only HE can control everything.
