California man arrested for allegedly stealing 26 cars to see girlfriend

‘Whenever Antonio Moreno wanted to see his girlfriend, he’d jump in a car and drive right over.

But there was a problem. The 26 cars Moreno jumped into all belonged to someone else.

Authorities arrested the 31-year-old near his suburban home on Wednesday. They said he was behind the wheel of a 1987 Toyota when they found him. [..]

He was “stealing vehicles as transportation to pursue their relationship,” said a police spokesman in Santa Barbara, where some of the thefts took place.

He didn’t have a driver’s licence or car of his own.’
