The son of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, reported some $30,000 in computers and concert tickets were stolen from a Cadillac Escalade he was driving in Detroit last week. The problem? The Escalade is leased by the government.
John Conyers III, 20, told Detroit police that he left the 2010 Escalade parked downtown for a hour late Wednesday night. When he returned, he found the SUV scratched up and items strewn around the interior. The missing goods included two Apple computers valued at $1,100 each and 1,000 tickets to a Big Sean concert at the Fillmore Detroit with a face value of $27,500. It's not that sizable a haul given that thieves typically take off with the entire Escalade.
