Gone in 60 seconds, then driven from Miami to Blaine in 2 days

The Associated Press

Police in Blaine, near the Canadian border, found a car in a bank parking lot on July 2 that had been stolen in Miami just about two days earlier.

The Bellingham Herald reports the thief was in a hurry. According to Google Maps, it would take 50 hours to drive the 3,400-plus miles nonstop. Mapquest says it’s more like 53 hours.

Police don’t know who took the black 2012 Jeep Patriot or why they sped from one corner of the country to the other.

That's a long trip, says Mapquest.

“That’s a long drive!” says Mapquest. But the car thieves likely didn’t need hotels on their route.
