Serial BBQ Brisket Thief Crashes Stolen Corvette

Updated April 17, 2015

San Antonio was the scene of a bizarre police chase that ended when a thief crashed a C7 Corvette into a Mustang. The story, however, doesn’t start or end there.

34 year-old Alan Meneley allegedly drove a truck to Augie’s Barbed Wire Smokehouse, and stole an undisclosed amount of brisket, a choice cut of beef from the breast or lower chest.  He proceeded to lead police on a chase, eventually evading them. Next, Meneley set a house ablaze, and continued his spree.  He stole the red C7 Corvette at gunpoint, and led police on another chase through San Antonio.

The Brisket Bandit then crashed the ragtop Corvette into a late-model Ford Mustang at Timber Path & Grissom Road, nearly totalling the Corvette, and was arrested.

He is a suspect in multiple other brisket thefts that had the San Antonio area restaurants on high alert, and has an extensive rap sheet.

This guy is a serious badass.  Not only is he a serial barbecue thief, he’s an arson, car thief, drug smuggler, and escape artist—all in one day!  If the kitchen is missing beef products while this dude is in the slammer…

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
