Think snagging stuffed animals with an arcade crane is tough? How about snagging full-size vehicles? That was the idea behind a brazen theft early Sunday in LaPorte, Ind., when someone drove a crane into the city’s Chrysler dealership and can be seen on surveillance video using it to lift a Jeep Wrangler onto a flatbed truck and then driving off, NWI reports. The theft lasted just six minutes. "He clamped into the roof, put the jaws through both doors and lifted it up,” Matt Magnuson, LaPorte Chrysler’s general manager, told the Chicago Tribune. "The Jeep has to be heavily damaged."
