Breakdown Lorry Law Breaker

How many of you have walked up to where you had parked your car to find it missing, replaced by a sniggering sticker on the kerb, informing you that your 4-wheeled sweetheart now nestles in the dungeons of the municipal compound? More than a few.
But then again, how grateful we are to see a breakdown lorry appear when we are stranded on the hard shoulder with an inert and sulking car?
But there is now a third kind of breakdown lorry – or there was until the police arrested its owner/driver: a man who has spent recent years picking up legally parked cars and taking them off to a scrapyard to collect between 100 and 150 euros for each one from an equally crooked scrap-yard owner.
