Although I'm amazed that this would not be considered a criminal act.
Probably a bad analogy, but if I borrowed somebodies car and removed their high-end rims/tires and replaced them with 4 spare 'donuts' would they have no criminal recourse.
Oh, I also removed the stereo, but did plug it up with a piece of sheet metal.
The only way this is going to stop is if someone (or a few) take him to court.
If not only those on boards like this will know to avoid Lance.
