Good To Know: Police Still On The Lookout For Evan Longoria’s Bitchin’ Camaro

By now you have more than likely heard that Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria had a couple of cars stolen recently from an overflow lot of a shop in Chandler, Arizona, a 1967 Camaro RS and a Buick RSX. The Buick was quickly abandoned by the obviously inept thieves (they had no carjacking skills, allegedly) and subsequently recovered but police are still searching for the Camaro, which is said to have a value of $75,000.

To make matters worse, I heard that the Bitchin’ Camaro has tremendous sentimental value to Longoria: as a gift for the teenager Evan, his parents drove it up from the Bahamas.

But do not fret for Longoria, police have their best people on it, according to Chandler Police Detective David Ramer (via azcentral):

“We are still looking for leads from the public and detectives are working the case.”

Leads, yeah, sure. They’ll just check with the boys down at the crime lab, they’ve got four more detectives working on the case. They got them working in shifts! Leads!

Yeah, that’s right. A reference to the Dead Milkmen AND The Big Lebowski in one post. I got skills to pay the bills, y’all. Or not. But a reference to the Dead Milkmen that doesn’t involve “Punk Rock Girl” or “Stuart”? I hate to toot my own horn, but that’s blogger gold, kiddos. I’m not like the other people, here, in the trailer park.
