‘Why can’t they apply it to being a legal car mechanic?’

Senator on truck thief: ‘Why can’t they apply it to being a legal car mechanic?’

State Sen. Kevin Blackwell has a message for the person that stole his white GMC Sierra from the parking lot behind Walker’s Drive-in in Fondren. He says he noticed his vehicle was missing after leaving the restaurant. He then went back inside to watch the surveillance video of the thief breaking into the truck, starting it and pulling off, all within seconds. “It is a shame that somebody has that type of skill set,” Blackwell said. “Why can’t they apply it to being an electrician or plumber or maybe even a legal car mechanic?”The senator says he has contacted Jackson police and On-Star to track his vehicle. The truck has yet to be found.
