What is thought to be a band of thieves broke into eight cars at a park-and-ride lot in Salem, New Hampshire. Then it is thought they went next door to Cars, Inc. and stole a Mercedes-Benz, a Land Rover and a 2003 Porsche 911. The Mercedes and Land Rover getaway drivers reportedly went on about their business quietly. The Porsche driver, on the other hand, decided to flaunt what he got: at 2 a.m. he drove eight miles over the border to Methuen, Massachusetts, pulled into the local police station and did donuts in their front lot.

But wait, there's more: he took off, entertained himself for two hours, then went back to the police station at 4 a.m. and whipped up a few more hot, rubbery circles. A police cruiser was on scene and gave chase, but the 911 pilot got away.

A little later in Lawrence, MA, two miles from Methuen, someone called police to report a rolled 911. The stolen wheels were recovered, the thief in question was not. We have no doubt the Methuen PD – once the screaming stops – is preparing to put that Porsche through a forensic and DNA investigation that would make CSI proud. Scroll down for the news report from WHDH.

      Cop 1: "Somebody is doing donuts out front!" Cop 2: "Jelly filled or chocolate covered?"

      anyone notice on the window it says "Role over?" If the cops can't spell how do they expect to find finger prints?

        Wonder if the cops are getting spelling lessons from the autoblog staff?

        Maybe they were attempting to say, "...and starring in main role is a Porsche 911"

        I was gonna say. All these high-end cars have the chip-embeded keys nowadays. How do the thiefs even hotwire these cars?

          Not half as embarrassing as when the Dunkin Dougnuts that was right across the street from the Maryland State Police Barracks in Waldorf, MD was robbed and the thief got away on foot.

      I hope they catch them. Having had two cars stolen, I know the feeling!

      This is what happens when you treat property crime as if it's not a serious matter. No consequences = more of that behavior.

      Thats nothing. An idiot broke into my mom's car and didn't see the two cameras filming it. They then hauled butt down the street and crashed head on into a police car. That made it kind'a hard to say not guilty.

      In all fairness I don't think this car had been through any drive as wild as this one since it's left the factory. You know what I mean, people who can buy normally for show.

      That's funny...it's ballsy to rip tires infront of the cops in the first place but then to go back for seconds? Well as far as being a decoy I can see that being the main reason for what happened more benz's and range's are wrecked I'm sure then porsche's so the parts will move a lot faster after they're cut into pieces...
