A young woman has been arrested after she tried turning her boyfriend in for stealing a car while still in the vehicle alongside him.
In Nashville Tennesee this year a couple were arrested for the theft of a Dodge Challenger. Chance Mongeon was responsible for the crime, having jumped the counter of a rental car service and grabbed the keys for the vehicle which he then drove off in. Police were unable to catch him even after he had driven over two sets of spikes.
However the really interesting part comes later when police received a phone call from a young woman claiming to be Chance’s girlfriend, Cristy Cardwell. She said she would inform them of the couple’s (and the car’s) location only if they guaranteed she would receive reward money for her... uh… “good deed”.
Great plan or what?
Real life, however, decided to intervene and wreck the young woman’s bizarre plan.
The police soon caught up with the couple who were both arrested. Cardwell was charged with harbouring and abetting a fugitive, intention to hinder arrest, and refusing to provide aid to assist in an arrest.
Common sense should probably have told her that the police wouldn’t take well to what is, essentially, holding vital information on a crime for ransom. One also has to wonder, how does poor Chance feel in all this? He was certainly a complete and utter idiot, that’s for sure. But could you imagine finding out that your girlfriend had tried to turn you in for a reward?
Could you imagine finding out that she had tried to do so while you were still in the car with her? We feel like that would make any future reunions between the two lovers very awkward. Also, how did he not notice her cupping her hand around her mouth while she whispered words like "ransom" "reward" and "he's right f*ckin' here, come get 'im" into her mobile phone?
