Fortunately, most of us never have to suffer through the theft of our beloved Corvette.
But what about the case of the Dallas, Texas woman who has experienced that heartbreak TWICE in the past three months?
That’s what has happened to Melissa Anderson, whose Torch Red C7 Corvette Z06 was parked in the parking garage of the AMLI Design District apartments when it was stolen in February.
The replacement car, which even had a locked car cover on it, was then stolen earlier this month, according to a report byNBC 5 reporter Jack Highberger.
“This has been the most expensive mistake I’ve ever made in my life, having over 180k in cars stolen in less than 90 days,” Anderson said.
Anderson believes her building is a target, and who could blame her after police records show 10 reports of motor vehicle theft from 1400 Hi Line Drive?
“It’s a target,” Anderson said. “There is an organized crime operation when it comes to auto thefts and burglary when it comes to this building.”
Despite multiple attempts to reach officials at AMLI Residential Heights by NBC 5, they’ve received no comment about the thefts, according to Highberger.
Anderson claims the apartment company has “dismissed the whole thing,” claiming “they haven’t sent out notices about various crimes happening in our building.”
Let’s hope the third time is the charm for Anderson, and she can enjoy her Corvette without having to worry about it being stolen.
“There are people who love their cars, there are people who are insane about their cars, and there’s me,” she said.
