DUMBASS, steals a rare Ford, GT40, spray paints it black and drives it around a small town thinking no one would notice in Marshalltown, Iowa.

What a way to ruin a car.

n what has to be one of the dumbest cases of car thefts I’ve ever heard of, police in Mashalltown, Iowa, caught a suspect driving a stolen Ford GT40 replica that had been painted black—likely to disguise what has to be the only example of such car in the small city of 30,000 residents.

Though police don’t yet know if the suspect, Patrick Allen Chamberlin, was the one who painted the car, KCCI 8 says Marshalltown PD has charged him with “theft, possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and several traffic offenses.”
