Volvo Driver Accused of Armed Robbery
|NOT THE ACTUAL CAR!|
|Crime on wheels?|
A silver 2006 Volvo SUV -- license plate 5VXY807 for the eagle-eyed -- pulled behind a man loading property into his car at around 2:15 Tuesday afternoon in the 1700 block of Van Ness. The driver hopped out of the Volvo, brandished a handgun, and made off with the hapless man's video camera. The thief then sped away in the silver Volvo.
The San Francisco Police spokesman said there's no word yet on whether the Volvo was stolen (the plates were, however). But, regardless, he's a fan of the brand.
"Oh, they're very safe cars," he said. "Very safe."
