RELATEDTOPICS AdvertisementIn this case, it was easy work for the thieves. The car door was unlocked, the keys were inside and the crook just hopped in and took off.A few weeks later, Findley said police found the car — ditched — up in St. Petersburg. “My guess is they were using it to like, either just mess around in or they used it for like, maybe a drug run or… I don’t know,” Findley said.

Two teens under 16 were recently busted in St. Pete for driving a car stolen from the Cape.Angel Rios III, from Bradenton, was arrested in the Cape for stealing a car. Police say Rios told them he was ‘car-hopping’ in a group of about 19 people and 7 cars. “They find the unlocked cars and steal the car, maybe go for a joyride and then basically discard the vehicle at that point,” CCPD Detective Dan Costa explained to NBC2. The thefts are contributing to a rise in stolen vehicles in the Cape. From January to early April, 34 vehicles were reported stolen in the city — about one every three days. In rarer cases, the thieves are more sophisticated. A group of several people swiped 5 new rides from a dealership in the Cape last month. They used a laptop to unlock and start the cars, which were traced to Miami in the morning but then off the radar for good.In the past, those stolen cars may have ended up at a ‘chop shop’ to be taken apart for parts. Police say that isn’t happening as often anymore. The thieves have gotten more sophisticated in what they do after the vehicle is stolen as well.“A lot of the vehicles, they don’t necessarily get chopped up. They’ll get re-vinned and what are called ‘cloned vehicles’ and they’re sold to unsuspecting buyers,” Costa explained. “And then the other portion of those vehicles may end up in cargo ships, containers and sent, being exported to other countries as well.”Cracking those cases and finding the ‘cloned’ cars is a major challenge for police — and there are big implications. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles explains that if you buy a cloned car and it’s discovered as such, it will be confiscated and you’re on the hook for any outstanding loans. The FLHSMV has put together a list of things to watch out for to make sure you don’t end up buying a cloned vehicle.Costa said CCPD is working with several police agencies to solve cases, but there are simple things residents can do to help cut down on the spike of stolen cars.Buy a steering wheel lock for your vehicle and cameras for the outside of your house. And of course, always lock your car doors and never leave the keys inside. The Findley’s learned that the hard way. “This earth we live on, there’s a lot of people that don’t have the right intentions,” Findley said. “You gotta just keep an eye out.” Advertisement AdvertisementTags: Cape CoralCar theftinvestigators AdvertisementDC Young Fly knocks out heckler (video) – Rolling OutRead more6 comments’Mortal Kombat’ Exceeded Expectations Says WarnerMedia ExecutiveRead more2 commentsDo You Remember Bob’s Big Boy?Read more1 commentsKISS Front Man Paul Stanley Reveals This Is The End Of KISS As A Touring Band, For RealRead more1 comments CAPE CORAL, Fla. (WBBH) — Judah Findley is a fast car fanatic. He buys wrecked sports cars, rebuilds them and shares it all on social media. “This is a 2016 Hellcat,” Findley said, showing off the car in his Cape Coral driveway. “It’s the 6.2 Supercharged.”That’s why it was ironic earlier this year when a car — not his, but his mom’s — was stolen right from that very driveway. A neighbor’s surveillance camera captured it all in the dead of night. “They pulled up. Stopped. Put their lights off, came in, and within 30 seconds — they were gone,” Findley recalled.

Australian F-35A Lightning II achieves Initial Operational Capability Joint media release:Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSCAustralia’s F-35A Lightning II fleet can now be deployed on operations, with Initial Operational Capability being officially achieved today.Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC said the F-35s are the most advanced, multi-role stealth fighter in the world.“The fifth-generation F-35A, along with the F/A-18F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler, is key to our air combat capability and critical to achieving the objectives set out in the 2020 Defence Strategic Update to Shape, Deter and Respond,” Minister Reynolds said.“For the last two years, Defence has rigorously tested the F-35A fleet to assess aircraft and system performance, and declare this important milestone.“I would like to thank everyone that has worked so hard to get us to this point; to have accomplished all the required testing and materiel delivery is remarkable.“The Australian Defence Force now has an F-35A squadron ready to conduct technologically advanced strike and air combat roles, and another squadron dedicated to providing world-class training here in Australia.“While 2020 presented significant challenges to all of us, and travel restrictions made it difficult to ferry our aircraft to Australia, the huge efforts of Defence, industry and our partners in the United States made today’s achievement possible.”Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said cooperation with industry had set Defence up for long-term success.“Our defence industry has played a critical role in achieving today’s milestone, which continues the success story of Australia’s involvement in the F-35 global program,” Minister Price said.“Just last month we announced that more than 50 Australian companies have shared in $2.7 billion in contracts, demonstrating the Morrison Government’s commitment to backing Australian industry and supporting Australian jobs.“Australia will continue to work with the United States F-35 Joint Program Office and our industry partners as more aircraft are delivered through to 2023, and a mature capability is achieved.” /Public Release.

Sigve Brekke, CEO of Telenor Group, said lack of ID was one of the biggest stumbling blocks to digital inclusion. Speaking at yesterday’s keynote session – Creating a Better Future for Everyone – the CEO highlighted that 1.1 billion people in the world do not have an official ID.“In the eyes of government they basically don’t exist,” said Brekke. “Think about what that means when it comes to rights on medical care and education. Think about what that means when governments are planning schools, hospitals or doctors. Think how important it is for new-born kids to have an ID, so we can fight child marriage, child labour and child trafficking.”Telenor is addressing the ID problem in emerging markets where it has a presence, with special focus on Bangladesh, Pakistan and Myanmar.In Pakistan, in cooperation with UNICEF, Brekke explained that children can now be registered using a specially-designed mobile app. After details such as name and data of birth are logged in, it is sent to the personal ID database. An SMS is then sent in reply with an ID number.Telenor’s plan is to register 700,000 children in Pakistan during 2018. In the coming two to three years, said Brekke, the plan is to register 7 million children across Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar with the relevant authorities in each country.The scale of the problem Telenor is tackling is vast. In Pakistan alone there are 60 million people not registered, but it’s something that the CEO is keen to address. “Digital inclusion starts with ID,” he said.Another area where Telenor is helping governments, NGOs and aid agencies is the ability to depict the movement of people – using anonymised data – on special maps where higher concentrations of light indicate greater density of people. In this way, aid efforts in times of disaster or emergency can be better directed.Enrica Porfcari, CIO of the World Food Programme, said working with mobile operators and exploiting big data to determine where people are was key in providing food assistance to where it is needed most.

Steven Bowditch won his second PGA Tour event, the Byron Nelson turned into a sloppy mess in the second round, Rory McIlroy missed a second consecutive cut, and I’m writing a second consecutive Monday Scramble: There is reason to be concerned following McIlroy’s 80-71 showcase at Royal County Down. Not necessarily for the U.S. Open, but for further down the road. Golf Digest’s Jaime Diaz said the same thing much more eloquently and intelligently than can I, so I encourage you to click here and read it. It’s good to hear a powerful and well-respected voice in the game question McIlroy’s willingness to grind. We’ll say in the future, “McIlroy turned a 75 into a 71 today.” But in the present, that 75 is an 80. And 71’s should be 68’s. This is disconcerting from a world No. 1. Even more so when you consider McIlroy should go down as one of the top 10 players of all time. He may win the U.S. Open by eight shots in a few weeks, and if so, some will say ‘Eat crow.’ (People still say that?) But that would be missing the point of this Takeaway. Rory will win many, many times. He will win majors and win by large margins. But, eventually, at some point, he will miss consecutive cuts again. He will get loose with the driver early and never straighten the wheel. One missed 4-footer will turn into four missed 4-footers. That’s just who is he for now – not necessarily forever. Big deal. It happens to everyone. But McIlroy is special. His game is brilliant, of legendary proportions. He’s good enough to win events by multiple shots without his best. He doesn’t need to sustain that brilliance for long periods of time. He just needs to add in a consistency of averageness (by his standards). If he does that, forget a top-10 all-time player. We’re talking a historical Big 3: Jack, Tiger and Rory. 1. Last week around these parts we exalted the PGA Tour for its bevy of fabulous finishes. Like during a no-hitter, perhaps we shouldn’t have made mention, because the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship went and did this. That’s not to disparge champion Steven Bowditch. The 31-year-old Australian earned his victory with a final-round, 5-under 64 that included six birdies and several impressive par saves over his final 13 holes. Bowditch got married on the 18th hole at TPC Four Seasons and this is his second triumph in the Lone Star State (2014 Texas Open). He overcame the multiple weather delays and the akward setup. He’s as worthy a winner as there’s been on Tour this season. I just wish I could stop staring at his eyebrows. He looks like Sam Eagle. Was he bitten by a werewolf? I. Just. Can’t. Stop. Staring. 2. And, just to be safe, because one reader believed me to be serious last week when I said Chris Kirk’s fourth PGA Tour win got him into the Hall of Fame conversation, I offer this: Yes, it’s low-brow humor (OK, puns are worse than sarcasm) but it’s all I got. 3. Jordan Spieth, competing in his hometown event, finished T-30 at the Byron Nelson. The highlight of his week came in a 5-under 64 on Friday while grouped with friend Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka. Spieth, born in Dallas and still an area resident, is the Nelson’s saving grace. He’s 21, a major champion, a fan favorite and never likely to abandon this tournament. Tiger Woods stopped playing the Nelson in 2005. Mr. Nelson died in 2006. The event has struggled to stand out ever since. It’s still not on par with upper-echelon Tour stops, like this week’s Memorial Tournament, but Spieth’s involvement – along with his primary sponsor, AT&T, serving as title sponsor of the Nelson – adds enough weight to keep the event from floating into obscurity. 4. McIlroy stepped out Sunday with his new girlfriend, PGA of American employee Erica Stoll. Twitterverse and the tabloids were giddy. We created a photo gallery. Honestly, I just want to know who’s the sidler in the background? As far as his play in concerned – McIlroy has missed three consecutive cuts at the Irish Open, which his foundation hosts – here is a suggestion: the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory Foundation and Contested in Jupiter, Florida. 5. Soren Kjeldsen won the Irish Open despite a final-round, 5-over 76 on “wind-swept and rain-batterd Royal County Down,” as the Associated Press described. Kjeldsen’s playoff victory, his fourth on the European Tour, got him into the British Open. The top three players inside the top 10 at the Irish, not otherwise exempt into the British, earned a spot at St. Andrews. That included Eddie Pepperall, who, along with Bernd Wiesberger, lost to Kjeldsen on the first extra hole Sunday, and Tyrell Hatten (T-4). Hatten edged out Rafa Cabrera-Bello, who also finished T-4, by virtue of his higher world ranking (142nd to 148th). Similar golden tickets will be available at the French and Scottish Opens, as well as the three PGA Tour events between the U.S. Open and Open Championship. 6. The Nelson nearly had a top-15 winner. World No. 10 Dustin Johnson and No. 12 Jimmy Walker were in contention on Sunday. Johnson chipped in twice and then made a quadruple bogey-8 at the par-4 sixth. Walker stumbled around the turn and wasn’t able to catch up late. We’ll have to wait to see if Walker can measure up to the Rickie Fowler post-victory-kiss standard. 7. Speaking of Fowler, he was in contention at the Irish Open until an 8-8 (quad-triple) finish on Saturday. His 76-73 weekend put him in a tie for 30th place. He was even par through two rounds, a notable accomplishment as his playing competitors, McIlroy (9 over) and Martin Kaymer (6 over), both missed the cut, with neither making a birdie in their first rounds. 8. The Stanford Cardinal won its first NCAA Women’s National Championship in golf, defeating the Baylor Bears in a compelling match-play final. You can nitpick the tournament all you want, but the new format (four days of stroke-play qualifying, followed by three rounds of knock-out match play) was a success. The semifinals and finals produced great theater, from the Lauren Whyte-Lisa Maguire Final-Four duel, to the Mariah Stackhouse-Haley Davis thriller to determine a champion. The men are competing now at Concession Golf Club, with Golf Channel airing the final round of stroke play and the entire match-play portion. 9. Switching to the professional ladies, Anna Nordqvist won for the third time in two years (fifth in her career) at the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Morgan Pressel missed another chance to end a seven-year winless drought, shooting 2-over 73 to drop from overnight leader to T-3. 10. Meanwhile, Michelle Wie returned from a hip injury to compete at the ShopRite. For two rounds. She missed the cut, shooting 74-72 (4 over). Following her breakout campaign last year, Wie doesn’t have a top-10 in 12 starts this season. Only two Americans have won this year: Cristie Kerr and Brittany Lincicome. How dare you? You cynical lot of people. Just because 12 players withdrew prior to the start of the Byron Nelson Championship, where the weather forecast resembled Picaso’s Blue Period, you go all Chuckie Sullivan (warning: profanity in video): Ian Poulter strained something in the gym. Jason Day was dizzy. Kevin Kisner, Louis Oosthuizen, Jason Kokrak, Scott Gardiner, Chris Stroud, Alex Cejka, George McNeill, Neal Lancaster, Fredrik Jacobson and Will Zalatoris had stuff. Al Czervick broke his arm. “There is no such thing as coincidence,” said a lot of people a lot of times. “Maybe some reasons are legitimate, but not all,” said the doubters. How can we unite as a society if we can’t believe the excuses and non-excuses our professional golfers give to us when they back out of tournaments? You say, these guys are spoiled and abhor inconvience. I say … well, you may be right: U.S. Open sectionals began this past week, with 36-hole qualifiers in Japan and England. Ten Stateside qualifiers will be contested on June 8. … Phil Mickelson was spotted practicing at Chambers Bay. … European Ryder Cup qualifying for the 2016 Matches begins in Russia, in Sepetember. It will still be more interesting than current Presidents Cup qualifying. … Rory McIlroy’s Northern Ireland home is for sale. It was on the market before this past week’s performance. … European Solheim Cup captain Carin Koch named Sophie Gustafson and Martina McBride Maria McBride (formerly Hjorth) her vice captains, along with previously announced Annika Sorenstam. … Alabama’s Emma Talley won the NCAA women’s individual title. … And, on the men’s side, the NCAA doled out four slow-play penalties during on Sunday. Hey, Finchem, you paying attention?
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Alison Lee shot a 6-under 65 on Thursday for a share of the first-round lead with China’s Xi Yu Lin in the LPGA Malaysia, the 20-year-old American’s first event since her emotional Solheim Cup debut. Lee birdied five of the first eight holes at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, and added birdies on Nos. 12 and 14. The UCLA student bogeyed the par-3 17th and – after rain and lightning delayed play more than three hours – got up-and-down for par on the par-4 18th. In the Solheim Cup last month in Germany, Lee was in tears after Suzann Pettersen called for the American to be penalized for picking up her ball when she mistakenly thought a short putt had been conceded in the completion of a fourballs match. Infuriated, the U.S. rallied to beat Europe in the biggest comeback in event history, with Lee winning her singles match. ”Not only did we win, but just to be able to be there and participate and be a part of something so great like that and to go into history with the biggest comeback ever,” Lee said. ”Definitely learned a lot from it.” She has been busy off the course. ”Right after Solheim I took one day off and started school right away and did my apartment and bought books and went to class, did rush,” Lee said. ”I don’t know how I’m sitting here right now. I don’t know how I survived, but I did it somehow. I feel like it’s all a great experience. I love still being in school.” Lin three-putted the 18th for her only bogey. ”I guess I was a little too aggressive trying to make another birdie,” Lin said. Michelle Wie was a stroke back along with defending champion Shanshan Feng, Yani Tseng and Chella Choi. Finally over hip and ankle injuries, Wie had eight birdies and three bogeys. ”Just feels so good to be out here and not thinking, ‘Oh, this swing is going to hurt my hip and my ankle,”’ Wie said. ”Just going out there and being actually able to hit balls and hit golf shots and play the way that I know I can.” Feng dropped out of a tie for the lead when she three-putted the final hole for her lone bogey. Top-ranked Inbee Park, the 2012 winner, was tied for 10th at 68. She won two majors this year and is tied with second-ranked Lydia Ko for the tour victory lead with four. Ko had a 71. The 18-year-old New Zealander is coming off consecutive victories in the Canadian Women’s Open and Evian Championship, where she became the youngest major champion. Pettersen opened with a 77. The Norwegian star had a double bogey and four bogeys. The event is first of five straight in Asia. The LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship is next week in South Korea, followed by stops in Taiwan, China and Japan.
