Colorado woman tried to steal a truck, but could not drive stick shift

A Colorado woman tried to rob a truck but was thwarted when she was left behind the wheel of a stick-shift vehicle, police said.

“Stick shift FTW” [for the win]”While not standard recommendations for auto theft prevention, stick shifts prevented thieves from traveling very far in stolen vehicles last Friday,” the Boulder Police Department said in a press release.

Police confirmed to FOX News Digital that 26-year-old Amber Davis was arrested after failing to drive properly and crashing into a fire hydrant.

Law enforcement said they received a report of the crash on Friday, May 3 at 4:30 p.m., and quickly identified Davis.

Authorities said the 26-year-old woman had been arrested and released the day before on suspicion of stealing another car.

Police said she spotted the truck as she was walking, looked at her keys, got in the car and drove away.
