United-States My Baby was Kidnapped! BRG '05 Cooper S in San Francisco (repost)

(I'm reposting into this subforum because of the geographic relevance.)

Hi Everyone!

I'm not sure where else to turn to so I hope to enlist my fellow Mini enthusiasts to keep an eye out for my beloved 05 Mini Cooper S. British Racing Green, White Top, White Stripes, White Rims (Picture attached).

California License plate 5KHL837



The thieves took it from my garage in San Francisco. To make matters worse, they have the key to it too. A friend in the SFPD told me that they'll more than likely be swapping out license plates. I know that the chances I'll recover it are slimmer than slim but I had to try.

Thanks!

Um, how'd they get the key? That's probably what allowed them to steal it. There's no "hotwiring" these MINIs; you have to have the key with the transponder chip in it to get them to start and run. Otherwise, you could use a flatbed to steal a MINI.

Is there any way to know it's your mini?
Like a sticker, special interior, etc?
