Tow Truck Driver Takes & Crushes Wrong Car

FT. LAUDERDALE ( – She may be only 5’1” and weigh 100 pounds, but Ft. Lauderdale Police say Sebrina Rosenbaum, 23, took the wrong car and had it crushed.

According to Ft. Lauderdale Police, Rosenbaum was driving a tow truck on April 19 in the 1800 block of NW 15th Street in Ft. Lauderdale. Police said Rosenbaum took possession of a 1992 Ford Escort from the home of 78-year-old Robert Lyons.

Rosenbaum took the car from a person named Linval Ayton, who claimed ownership of the car, but never showed proof of ownership. Police said Rosenbaum failed to get the right thumb print of Ayton on the Derelict Motor Vehicle Certificate as required by law.

Police said that Rosenbaum took the car off Lyons property against his will and then took the car to Broward Discount Towing, where it was summarily crushed.

As a result, police charged Rosenbaum with grand theft auto, a derelict motor vehicle application violation. She was also charged with violating probation, which she was on for fraudulently obtaining property.

Rosenbaum is in jail with no bond.
