    I'm not a cop but this shouldn't be too hard to narrow down.. if the guy is a MA resident.

    No front tag means he has a old green license plate that is still in existence. And I don't think there would be many two door blue Porsche Cayman's on the streets of MA. This would narrow it down to less than 20 (maybe even less)..

    And honestly if he owns a Porsche Cayman, why is he stealing a credit card..sheesh. Times must be tough...

    Front tag may just not be on it

    A lot of people with sports cars like this just don't put the front plate on because it looks like crap. Illegal? Yes, and it won't pass inspection. But owners just put it on for inspection, then take it off. Cops are pretty good about noticing the missing front plate, too, and will cite you.

    I'd like to see how $1,000 worth of hockey equipment fits in a Porsche like that!

    1k worth of hockey equipment

    By on

    1k worth of hockey equipment could be a top end pair of skates (around 800 bucks) and a pair of gloves or a helmet (150-200). High end hockey equipment is stupid expensive.

    You'd be surprised - a pair

    You'd be surprised - a pair of high-end skates alone could run $600+. Some nice composite sticks are $200, but, I don't think they'd fit in a car that size, either...

    The problem though is that there's no guarantee he is from mass. He could just as likely be from New Hampshire, or any other bordering state, or really anywhere else on this continent.

    NH inspection stickers go in

    NH inspection stickers go in the top-center of the windshield, behind the mirror. MA stickers go in the lower passenger's side corner, which is where the (blurry) sticker is in the photo.

    no front plate = cop. Same with tint, illegal lights, etc.

    "No front tag means he has a old green license plate that is still in existence. "

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA.

    Or he's a cop. Every time I walk by a vehicle with no front plate, dollars to donuts (get it? get it?) there's a ticketbook/patrol cap on the dash/front seat, and a "thin blue line" sticker on the back somewhere or a tiny MSP sticker. A buddy worked as a car dealer and sold a cop an brand new German sports luxury sedan. Cop told him "no front plate." Dealer said "Gotta put the front plate on." Cop threatened to go to another dealer if they attached a front plate. "OK, I'll just tape it on so we meet the requirements."

    First thing the cop does is rip the front plate off and toss it in the trunk. Second thing he does is pull out a small ice-cream-cone-shaped (triangle on the bottom, semi-circular top) decal that says "Massachusetts State Police" and slap it on the upper left corner of the rear window. "Ooo, you gotta get me one of those", the dealer says. "Yeah, we don't do that. That's for us", cop says.

    Cops also love completely illegal level of window tint (it's well known among car enthusiasts that some shops break the rules for cops) and illegal blue flashing lights (they're not legal in MA on personal vehicles. Never have been.)

    "Do as I say, civilian!"

    Ah, the kleptocratic class

    Got to love somebody who owns a Porsche stealing a credit card. Says a whole lot about the opportunistic and greedy nature of some wealthy money hoarders.

    Ah, yes. Broad, derogatory generalizations about entire groups of people based on the actions of a single individual. That's what I came to the comments section for.

    And

    Could be the Porsche's hot, too. Kleptocratic class indeed.

    I doubt even the dumbest of criminals would drive around an intentionally attention-getting bright blue sports car. Since the Cayman has an MSRP of around $60,000, I imagine this car was the result of someone's rich parents.
