Default 1996 Collector's Edition Corvette Stolen! Jacksonville FL area...

Hey Guys!

An ex-girlfriend stole my 1996 Collector's Edition Corvette right out of my driveway! It's got the LT4/ZF6, and a grey interior. Other stuff that stands out about it are tri-flow air intake, aftermarket exhaust, louvered tail lights, louvered license plate frame, and front license plate is black with the C4 Logo. It was stolen March 3rd in Orange Park Florida. I am unable to report it as stolen, because it is considered "joint property"...even though she left 3 months ago, and Florida is not a common law marriage state. Please let me know if you've seen anything out there! If I need to post this any place special, please let me know...904-439-5367

Thanks!

That sucks big time. Can you prove it was her for sure? Gotta be something police can run on her personal info to track her down. I can't believe with you two not being married (unless she's on the title as well?) that she can skate because of a joint prop excuse. I'm in the area...I'll keep an eye out when I'm out. I hate to say it: she's probably aware the car would stick out (not a lot of C4s in Jax and it's bright silver), so it may be parked behind someone's house or in a garage.

Long story. She was not on the title or any paperwork. She's not even on the lease of my home nor did she ever have a key! Never drove the car, or any of my others, 'cause I've seen her wreck too many! Cops gave me a statute, and it says Florida hasn't recognized common law marriage since January 1968! But I have tried four times, irritated the hell out of them, and haven't gotten any further. Supposedly, if I see the car, I can hop in and drive it away!

Awesome, I appreciate it! Have gone up to the area every night looking for it. Have not seen one 96 CE!

Can't you just report it stolen, and just leave out the ex-girlfriend part?

All you have to do is report it stolen by the new guy and I'd bet it turns up real quick. If not, a bag of dead fish on a door step generally makes missing things turn up quick too. sometimes you gotta play hardball.

if she is NOT on the Title She should have No Claim on it, In FL. you can Title as a Self Own (just you) Joint and or( and Needs Both Signature's) Or (can be Sold by Either Person without other Signature) So if she is not on Title I say Stolen.

Common law bs? Some guys has it, report it with no mention of her and move on!!
Post some pics, get it viral

SHe has no key to your place, she lives separately?
Dont sit back and take it report and press charges some idiot is coaching her and youre gonna get more $urprises. BTDT!

Were you served papers? This is grand theft plain and simple....google fraud by deception also. Good luck

That's the sticky part. I have all the paperwork in my name only, ready for transfer. I was still doing maintenance on it, so figured I'd do it all when it was road ready. Idiot(s) stole it with no tags on it!

Yea, that's what my attorney says too. The cops have not cooperated at all. Gave me a statute to look up, and it only confirms my point since it mentions FLORIDA HAS NOT RECOGNIZED COMMON LAW MARRIAGE SINCE JANUARY 1968!

Nope, she lived there up until 3 months ago, but I still never gave her a key LoL

Yea, I don't know why no law enforcement here sees it that way...

This statement FLORIDA HAS NOT RECOGNIZED COMMON LAW MARRIAGE SINCE JANUARY 1968!, the way I interpret it. That there's No joint Assets of things bought during a non-Commited Relationship, Especially if you have paper trail of money taken from your banking that Is Not a joint Account.
