Dope growers stealing Porsche headlights for crops

  • image

    Perplexed Dutch owners have returned their cars to find their Porsche's headlights missing.

Thieves overseas are stealing Porsche headlights to use as marijuana "grow lights".

Netherlands newspaper De Telegraaf reports that 20 top end Porsche Cayenne SUVs and Panamera sedans have had their hi-tech HID headlights stolen, and police believe they are being used by hydroponic growers rather than a stolen car ring.

Perplexed Dutch owners have returned their cars to find their Porsche's headlights missing - but with everything else intact. Each headlight costs up to $1000.

Porsche Cars Australia spokesman Paul Ellis told News Limited there have no been reports of its headlights being stolen in Australia. 

At least NSW Police will have a good idea what the crooks are looking for: the force recently took delivery of Porsche Panamera sedan as a community liaison vehicle in the North Sydney area command.  It is the first Porsche to be donated to an Australian police force.
