The car has to be unique, so if efforts were made to check on registration, perhaps with an emphasis on known thieves, or from areas know to have lots of thieves, probably a series of robberies could be solved, and more important lots of future ones prevented.
Q. Is this the same as the black Cadillac Escalade that police stopped on 680 found with stolen checks, and 3 citizens of Oakland?:
Marcellus Lewis, 38, Kenyatta Island, 34, and Kent Battle, 27.
Another example of how just a few bad people commit a lot of crimes.
*Also a rare example of technology used to help people.
