You’d think that if you stole a car in Canada you’d probably want to head for the border and avoid flashing your disfigured hand at people who might be able to recognize you. A thief they called the Claw stole a Nissan Skyline GT-R from a man in Calgary during a test-drive. The owner, Shaun Ironside, posted to an online car forum, asking folks to keep an eye out for the car. A few days later some members of the forum saw the car and, interestingly enough, a young man with the middle and ring fingers missing on his left hand — hence the name the claw.

The posse began hunting down the kid and finally caught him one morning. The 18-year-old is now in Canadian jail where he’ll have to eat normal bacon, not rich, delicious Canadian bacon.
