Recycle, but don't recycle other people's stuff

Sometimes one man's treasure is another man's trash (don't worry, I'm quitting writing after today).

Atlanta Police caught a guy, 26-year-old Ameen Jones, who has been trolling neighborhoods, finding homes with cars in their driveways, and then selling the cars to recycling companies. Police were apparently alerted by one such company when Jones tried to sell a car that was parked at Donnelly Avenue in West End.

Police couldn't say exactly how many times Jones has pulled off the scam — which seems risky since cars in driveways usually mean people are home and might notice when a tow truck drives up and some guy with long, flowing dreadlocks collects money for their car — just that he'd done it "several times." Sgt. Curtis Davenport says, "Investigators are still working to locate victims now." Sorry in advance if your car was stolen is currently being dismantled for parts.
