A limousine that was donated to a chauffeur a group of celebrities heading to an event in Geelong, was stolen from outside a restaurant while they were enjoying dinner. Amongst the group were celebrities from the recent reality TV show I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. The limousine, which was a Chrysler stretch limo is worth $200,000 and was last spotted around 6.30pm on the night.
The loss of the limousine was not the only big news to be gleaned from the evening. One of the celebs decided to head back to the home of a very famous newly single lady, only to find the paparazzi lying in wait. A coincidence or set up, we’ll let you be the judge of that one.
Police have indicated that the limousine was stolen after the chauffeur had left it road side to indicate to the passengers where it was located. Having been gone for only a few minutes, the driver returned only to find the limousine stolen.
Quite understandably, the driver is devastated by the loss of the uniquely expensive vehicle, as the car was to be utilised for a number of other events which now had to be rescheduled.
In a sign of the times, the limousine owners then utilised social media to try and locate it. Help from the community was overwhelming resulting in the limo being spotted and then finally tracked down. Unfortunately it was not good news as the limousine was a complete write off.
This is not the first time a social media strategy has had success. A customer looking for a limo hire Perth service used the same methodology to undertake a quest on the best Perth company to use with great success.
The limousine owner chose to look on the positive side and noted that the situation could have ended a lot worse. These types of vehicles are very difficult to drive, especially for a novice driver. He was simply thankful that no one was hurt in a collision.
