    The defense is going to maintain that the blame lays squarely with the FedEx courier for leaving the key in the ignition.... I mean what recourse did the kid have after seeing that???

    " No. See what happen was he came up to me with his hand in his jacket and had something pointing at me. It looked like a guns so I gave him the keys and I went into to get some corn nuts."

    Leaving the keys in the ignition at a fueling station is a dumb thing to do but ultimately the decision to commit grand theft auto was made by the offender.

    I wonder if the thief got the Ground driver's stash? If they also got the custom-made bong and hookah set-up, he'd really be hurting.

    Most likely the truck was still running also. A good lawyer will get him off because they charged him with the wrong crime, I've never seen a FedEx Ground truck that anybody in their right mind would say is worth 25 grand.

    "Ownby made his first court appearance in Johnson County court. He was charged with one count of theft of a delivery truck valued between $25,000 and $100,000,"

    "Court documents said that officers recovered boxes with FedEx logos on them in a shed behind the family home, in the basement, in a playhouse in the backyard and behind the shed of a neighbor's home."

    Sounds like his peeps got the freight, they'll be well stocked in paper towels, toilet paper and depends.

    Fedex has manifests, shippers have dollar amounts.

    And both have insurance policies for this kind of thing.

    Doesn't change the charge against the thief.

    True that.

    A little jail time would be excellent therapy for that young man.

    I think it's amazing that the theft of a motor vehicle as well as it's cargo is being defended because the offense was committed against a Ground driver.

    I know that a lot of ground truck drivers and looking for a better deal. They just can't with the arrest record and DUI's. I love the ones with the jogging pants and flip flops getting fuel at the pilot. Im confused when my manager tells me to take my yankees beanie off because of uniform standards. Im wondering does the customer know the difference?
