First off, according to USAToday, during the week of October 30th, 56 sets of keys were stolen from Prunedale Motors, in Monterrey, California. The 26-year old suspect in the case was later arrested after being found in a vehicle stolen from the store; the suspect was  in possession of 56 sets of keys to dealership vehicles.

Next up, Tesla Motors is continuing its state-by-state legal battle, this time in Wisconsin. A bill, proposed November 1st in the Wisconsin state legislature, would allow Tesla Motors to sell its vehicles directly to consumers.

Finally, According to WCMH, Charles Brantley McGinnis recently went on a test drive at Germain Nissan, in Columbus, Ohio, before carjacking the vehicle at gunpoint. McGinnis reportedly brandished a gun during the test drive, and, following “a struggle”, the salesman was able to ” jump out of the car before calling 911.”
