A Columbus Ohio man who was carjacked outside a south side restaurant said his friends helped him come up with a plan to outsmart the thieves. Alan Heuss was sitting in his BMW last week with the engine running when a armed man approached him.

The thief and his accomplice got away with Heuss’ car, cell phone and some cash.
Heuss filed a police report and then met his friends to drown his sorrows. One of his friends came up with an idea to contact the thieves.

“He said ‘I’m going to text these guys, I’m going to blow some smoke their way,’” Heuss said. “He said. ‘I’m going to tell them I’ve got a bunch of hot chicks, as if I’m texting you, and that we’ve got some drugs, too.’”

The carjackers took the bait.

“Very early in the morning they gave him the address where they were,” Heuss said. “They were expecting this hot chick to arrive with drugs, and Columbus police officers arrived instead.”

Three men were caught red-handed in the stolen vehicle. Heuss says he expected to get his vehicle out of the impound lot on Friday.
