Would you go to jail for a turbo kit?

Check out who made CBS News in South Florida this weekend! A 23-year old parking attendant / police officer in-training decided to steal some cash and a few credit cards during a DUI stop and order up some parts for his 1994-1998 Mustang from AmericanMuscle.com!

Among the almost $10,000 worth of parts ordered was a Hellion Twin Turbo System, Bama Custom Tunes, 3.73 Gears and Underdrive Pulleys. Here’s a few clips from the video:

Mary has been here for 5 years, and I guess nobody realized she doubles as a detective! She intercepted the order, notified the credit card company, and the police took it from there. All joking aside, our staff works really hard to protect ourselves and our customers from fraudulent activity and we want to thank them. Processing orders can often be a thankless job, but one that is critically important. We are proud of Mary’s work and happy to have this guy off the street!

I mean, I know Bama tunes are HOT, but damn! How fast do you think his Stang would have gone?

    1. I saved up all year to buy 4 tires, SLP catback system,Rims,Led rear lights (All on the up and up mary) Just to be pulled over last nite and told my exhaust was to loud, My tint to dark,And even questioned my new moon lit dash just put in an hour b4 he pulled me over. Bottom line is these cops are just like anyone else, But act like god, Hope he gets the exact treatment any ordinary joe gets

    1. no, its clearly a 94-95 based off the tail lights, and its also a GT because of the spoiler. the V6 didnt have a spoiler and back when they made the 94-95 stangs the GT and the V6 both said “mustang” on the bumper. There wasnt a difference made with a “GT” added. The only thing that makes it seem like a V6 though would be the three spoke rims…. hmmm

      1. Guy’s… I knew this guy personally. I went to high school with him. The car on the news is not the car he drove. It look’s to me that the car on the new’s is his mother’s. I know she had one for years. It is definitely a V6 model. He drove a 2000 GT (Black). That’s why all the part’s he ordered where for the 99-04 model’s. It’s a shame he went a did something like this, because this is not like him at all. I guess that one stupid decision you make ruins the rest of your life.

      3. Your a dumb ass 94-95 GT’s say “MUSTANG GT” on the rear bumper and say “MUSTANG GT” on both fenders. I should know I own a 94 GT Jack ass.

  2. As a Trooper I’d really appreciate it if AM took “COP” off the title to this story. I hate the word cop to begin with and secondly, the guy wasn’t even a LEO. He was a meter man and not having the same duties as a LEO.

    1. COP=constable on patrol. You are a statie, or state trooper. If you don’t like what we call you, remind your buddies to stop stopping me for illegal mod in ohio, even though 9 of the ten who have stopped me didn’t know a distributor from a cat.

  6. Nice headline grab for the free publicity.

    Sadly, I think alot of your potential customers which happen to be real police officers will be offended with the somewhat embellished title of “Cop Steals…” when it turns out to be some Parking Enforcement employee.

    Absolutely, this asshat should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He brings enough bad press and embarassment to the organization who hired him and apparently did a poor background. But don’t pour salt in the wounds for a quick headline.

    You might be suprised at how many of your client base is paying for your goodies on a legitimate law enforcement salary.

    2. Police officers are supposed to set the example for other citizens both in the off icial duties and as a fellow citizen. Bad press is an insult to those that strive for that higher standard. No one remembers the positive, I would hope that those who watch this realize that this meter maid isn’t the same as the officers who arrested this guy

  8. The spoiler was optional for the V6 and it has the V6 “Pony and Bars” emblem on the fender. Does Hellion even make a kit for a 3.8?

  9. Some of the comments here bother me a bit. Regardless of the word COP or LEO or the less known LEP, I do not believe anyone is equating (or intended to equate) law enforcement professonals with criminal activity, expect, of course, in the line of duty.

    When people equate soldiers to “murderers,” I don’t take offense, because it doesn’t apply to me.

Nice to know they stopped the order and didn’t cost his victim any more money. I think they called him a “cop” because he had just graduated the Law Enforcement Training Academy.

    1. He did have a 99-04. It was actually a 2000 GT. I knew this dude personally. It’s a shame that he ruined his career like that. Actually, his whole life. I never would have imagined that he would have done something like that. He was a really cool dude. As far as the Mustang they have on the news report. I think that’s his moms car. I know his mom had a V6 Mustang, I’m just not sure if that’s the one.

  17. What makes me laugh is the “Troopers” who get upset over the term cop, but meanwhile pull the same illegal bullshit that every other person does on a daily basis.. I live in a state where tinting your vehicle is “illegal” and will get you pulled over.. Certain municipals will pull you over, others won’t.. But in order to make that fast cash, they do it.. But here is what makes me laugh even more. The cop who pulled me over, writes me a ticket, which I fight for illegal tint.. And when he shows up, he drives a Pontiac G5 with Limo Black tint on his vehicle.. So heres the question for you cry babies who want to whine about things.. Give me one reason why its okay for you to have your vehicle tinted, your wife’s vehicles tinted, and your kids vehicles tinted, but not mine? Sounds to me like its okay for Law Enforcement to do as they please, but not okay for me to do so? Your kid might be the next kid to pull a gun on a cop, so don’t even tell me its for “Your Protection” because your full of shit on that one.
