ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Meet Drew Mayo. He’s just a guy, having a good tome, rockin’ out in his car.

Except, it’s not his car. Even worse, for the would-be thief? It belongs to the Albuquerque Police Department.

Oh yes, the cops planted a camera in the bait car in hopes that someone just like Drew would take it. Mission accomplished.

“Not only did he seem overwhelmed with joy that they have the car, ironically enough, the song playing on the radio was This is the Best Day of My Life.”

He didn’t get too far before police shut off the car remotely and arrested him.

A charge of unlawful taking of a motor vehicle quickly turned the best day of his life.. into the worst day.
