Dumped in Warrendale

I noticed an abandoned car in Warrendale today. Unfortunately, abandoned cars are nothing out of the ordinary in Detroit. However, this one was a bit unusual in terms of how obvious it was that that this one had been stripped and dump here.

It's pretty obvious that the entire front end had been stripped away, making this more than just another car parked on the side of the road. In fact, not only has most of the front end been stripped, the engine is gone as well.

Nothing but leaves where the engine used to be (along with a couple of hoses that whoever dumped it didn't feel like taking). The fact that there are leaves in the engine compartment indicates that the car has probably been there for a few days. It takes awhile for that many of them to blow in to the empty engine compartment.

The VIN has also been removed from the vehicle:

Along with its license plate:

And the tires on one side of the car:

I reported this one to the Northwestern District of the Detroit Police Department this afternoon. We'll have to see how long it takes DPD to respond to this one.
