For the second time in five months, a Mercedes Benz owned by Charlie Sheen was stolen and sent off Mulholland Drive near his Santa Monica Mountains home, authorities said Tuesday. These must be pretty wealthy crooks to waste such expensive cars – I mean this is a $200,000 prank. Firefighters responding to a report of a traffic accident found the silver, 2010 Mercedes S600 about 100 feet down a brushy ravine about 3 a.m., Fire Department spokesman Eric Scott said.
The car was running and its lights were on. Nobody was inside, and it showed no signs of forced entry, authorities said. Sheen’s publicist Stan Rosenfield said he believed the keys were in the ignition, but police would not confirm that information. Maybe its time Charlie stopped leaving his keys in the ignition? Rosenfield declined to comment further, citing the ongoing police investigation. Someone apparently took the car from Sheen’s driveway. The car was found in the same area off Mulholland Drive where another Mercedes owned by Sheen was found on Feb. 5. The black, four-door car apparently was stolen from Sheen’s garage and pushed or driven over the cliff, where it came to rest upside down. Sheen had left the keys inside. A Bentley was later found off the same road. Police said they received reports of three other car break-ins in the area. No arrests have been made.
