    Man stole car with no brakes

    A Russian thief did not get very far after he stole a car from a repair shop - without realising the brakes had been removed.

    The 24-year-old had taken the broken Nissan Primera from the garage in southern Moscow and tried to make a quick getaway.

    But witnesses watched him sail through a set of traffic lights and smash into another car just a few yards down the road.

    A Moscow police spokesman said: "He told us he had watched mechanics doing a paint job on the car and had seen them leave the keys in the ignition so he decided to take his chance.

    That happened to my car about 10 years ago! It was stolen from beside the garage and found about a block and a half away...guess the thief didn't like his wild ride down the hill and around the turn, at least he didn't wreck it.
