NASHVILLE, Tennessee — This caper wasn’t fated to have a “Bonnie and Clyde” ending.
A Tennessee woman called cops to turn her car thief boyfriend in for a reward while sitting in the passenger seat of a car he had stolen.
Nashville police say Chance Mongeon, 37, had jumped the counter at the Enterprise rental car desk at the city airport, snatched a set of keys and made off with a 2017 Dodge Challenger.
According to police, Mongeon drove the car the wrong way down a one-way street ad over two set of spike strips but kept going. As officers responded, they were unaware exactly where Mongeon had gone, but then got a call from his gal pal, Christy Cardwell, who said she was in the car and she’d tell them where he was for a reward.
“She advised [the officer] that, ‘She knew the law very well and didn’t have to give him up’,” the police report read. But she wouldn’t give them specific details without some cash.
Cops eventually caught up with the pair and Mongeon was charged with theft. Cardwell, 38, was hit with charges of harboring a fugitive and accessory after the fact.
A search of a bag belonging to Mungeon turned up drugs and drug paraphernalia.
