Peter Kinder’s car stolen, rammed into gun shop, torched and left on county road; suspect arrested

Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder only planned to be in Cape Girardeau a short time Monday, until a police officer told him at 6 a.m. his 2009 Ford Flex had been stolen and found torched and left on a county road….

….Police said that before burning the vehicle, which was registered to the Friends of Peter Kinder, north of Cape Girardeau city limits on Highway 177, the suspect drove the Ford through a brick wall at Shooter’s Gun Shop….

Let’s check out some used vehicle prices on a 2009 Ford Flex:

2009 FORD FLEX SE $21,995

2009 FORD FLEX SEL $28,995

2009 FORD FLEX LIMITED $22,966

2009 FORD FLEX SEL $26,177

2009 FORD FLEX SEL $22,990

2009 FORD FLEX SEL $26,495

Interesting. The Lieutenant Governor’s campaign was able to negotiate the purchase of a used vehicle at half the going rate. That’s some serious bargaining prowess, right? Unless the vehicle wasn’t in very good condition to begin with.
