Vineland couple’s flat tire doesn’t deter car thief

    A flat tire doesn’t seem like such a hassle when you consider the worst case scenario: a stolen vehicle. A Vineland, NJ, couple appears to be dealing with both.

    When the couple got a flat Saturday morning, they left it at Mays Landing and Union roads. It was still there later Saturday and early Sunday. By late Sunday, it was gone, the Press of Atlantic City reports.

    Vineland police are now investigating the case, and it appears there’s a car theif lurking about. The 1995 green, four-door Honda Accord with an American flag sticker on the trunk lid and a slanted front license plate hasn’t turned up yet.
