Car thief busted while jamming out to ‘Best Day of My Life’

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Drew Mayo was just a guy, having a good time, rocking out in his car.

Except turns out it was not his car.

Even worse for the would-be car thief? It belonged to the Albuquerque Police Department.

The cops planted it in the hopes that someone just like Drew would take it.

And take it he did, which the stealthy cops caught on camera.

“Not only did they seem overwhelmed with joy that they have the car,” said Paul Szych with the Albuquerque Police Department, “Ironically enough, the song playing on the radio was, ‘This is the best day of my life.'”

He didn’t get too far before police shut off the car remotely and arrested him.

A charge of unlawful taking of a motor vehicle quickly turned the best day of his life into the worst day.
