Aussie man reports car stolen 21 times in 13 years to avoid traffic camera fines
Except that he was lying. According to the Geelong Advertiser, Hili was caught fibbing about the frequent theft of his car after reporting it stolen for the 21st time in 13 years. To his credit, we suppose, Hili fessed up to his crimes after being caught, pleading guilty to seven counts of obtaining financial advantage by deception and three counts of making a false document.
A judge convicted Hili and fined him 2,500 Australian dollars, though it's worth noting that no demerits were added to his license.
