Car Thief Calls Bail Bond Agent for Bail After Stealing Agent's Car

Share Article

Funny things always seem to happen to people in the Bail Bond Business. John Yonan, a California licensed bail agent and owner of Minuteman Bail Bonds experienced this phenomenon first hand when his car was stolen.

I told him I would not bail him out and he asked me why. I replied that it was my car that he had stolen...he did not respond for a long time...he then said 'oops' and hung up.

John Yonan, a California licensed bail agent and owner of Minuteman Bail Bonds at http://www.minutemanbail.com, recently walked out to his driveway and discovered his late model, fire engine red Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Turbo sports car was missing. He soon realized it had been stolen and called the local police (case #06-03804). The officer gathered information about the car, and Mr. Yonan was told that most stolen vehicles are recovered within a day or two. Sure enough, that same afternoon, the police called Mr. Yonan and informed him his car was recovered in Oakdale, CA about 45 miles away and that he could drive over to Oakdale and pick up his car.

The Oakdale police had the car towed to a local car dealer and after arriving at the dealer, Mr. Yonan inspected his vehicle. There was a lot of damage. Someone had quite a lot of fun speeding around in his car. There were dents, scratches, bald tires and he would soon realize the engine was rattling and may need to be replaced.

Mr. Yonan opened the door to the car and looked inside. The thief must have liked Cheetos Cheese Puffs because they were scattered throughout the cars interior. The glove box was open and the contents had been thrown on the passenger floor. Mr. Yonan sat down in the drivers seat and looked around for more damage. He then noticed a piece of paper on the passenger seat with writing on it. It was a letter. Mr. Yonan picked it up and could not believe what he read. The letter, presumably from the car thief, were instructions to his mother as to what the thief wanted her to do with his personal property when he began his prison sentence. The letter had names, phone numbers, a list of property, and the thief had signed it! Mr. Yonan immediately turned the letter over to the police detective in charge of this case.

The next day, the detective informed Mr. Yonan that the thief had been identified and was arrested. His prison term had not started yet and he was arrested at his home about two blocks from where the car was abandoned.

That afternoon, Mr. Yonan received a call at his bail bond business, Minuteman Bail Bonds. The caller identified himself and said he needed a bail bond. Mr. Yonan asked several questions and soon realized that he was talking to the thief that had stolen his car. Mr. Yonan said, "I told him I would not bail him out and he asked me why. I replied that it was my car that he had stolen...he did not respond for a long time...he then said 'oops' and hung up."
