On Saturday, Feb. 7, the Burien Police Department scared the heck out of some customers taking a used car out for a test drive when they pulled them over with guns drawn. “Unfortunately the dealership had bought the car at auction but hadnâ€™t noted it was in the computer system as a reported stolen car,” Sgt. DB Gates told The B-Town Blog. “Customers took the stolen vehicle for a test drive. A deputy ran the plate, saw it was stolen, and conducted a high risk stop â€“ which means our guns are drawn.” Luckily, nobody was hurt â€“ just scared. “Once the deputies found out that the driver and passengers were out for a test drive they worked with the dealership to ensure that the dealership takes steps to get the car taken out of the system as a listed stolen car,” Gates added. Here’s a Tweet sent out about the incident:

The dealership should change their slogan to, “Prices so low, the cops will think you stole it!”
