Queen Latifah is reported to have fallen victim to the latest trend in car thefts where criminals sneak into the driver’s seat of a car while a person is pumping gas and drive off.
The crime happened on December 20, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. Fulton County police told F5A that another person was driving Latifah’s car alone when they stopped to get gas at a Shell gas station. According to the police report, the driver of the 2015 Mercedes Benz S63 was pumping gas when a white BMW pulled next to the car and the theft happened.
