Stealing Toyota Prius Batteries Is Now A Thing

How is this not the easiest crime in the world to solve? Cops check to see who is selling Prius batteries (Craigslist, etc.), which shops are buying them, follow up leads, dig around a bit and make a few arrests.

A quick search of the SF-Bay Area Craigslist shows battery packs going for anywhere between $700 and $1,300, but that’s just for the hardware آ– repair shops are charging between $3,000 and up to $7,000 depending on the damage and the source of the parts.
