Ten O'Clock News; Art of car theft
Reporter David Boeri walks with Sam Cook, age 24, retired auto thief and part seller. Cook explains his specialties being Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z, Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, Chevrolet Monte Carlo Super Sport, and customized vans. MDC officer Robert Springer and State Trooper Richard Connolly of Governor's Auto Theft Strike force comment on Cook's theft and similar theft in other cities. 50,000 cars were stolen in Boston in 1987: most in the country. Cook explains that auto thieves look for parts of cars rather than reselling whole cars. Cook now works for City of Boston as a parking enforcement officer.
