Charlie Sheen Car Theft -- Inside Job?

6/16/2010 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Charlie Sheen has given LAPD detectives information that raises the possibility that someone had been casing the joint when his second car in 4 months was stolen and dumped over a cliff.

Charlie Sheen Car Theft

As TMZ first reported -- when the first incident occurred in February -- Charlie had left his car in his driveway with the keys in the ignition.   Thieves made off with the car and rolled it off a cliff on Mulholland Drive.

We're told Charlie made a habit of taking the keys out of the ignition since the February incident ... with only 2 exceptions -- the last being Monday at around 4 PM.

Sources say there's a feeling someone might have been casing Charlie's house, waiting for another opportunity to strike.  Since it's a gated community, one of the avenues being explored is that a worker on the grounds could be involved.

And law enforcement sources say ... Charlie has told cops he can't think of anyone he knows who had a grudge that would manifest itself this way.

incompetent police!!! if you would actually investigate you would find that this car(i own 2 of this exact models) does not require a "key" it is a "fob" that you just keep in your pocket and the car automatically unlocks and is ready to start via a "start-stop
engine" button whenever the cars "brain" detects the "fob" radio signal that is picked up if the "fob" and the car are within around 25-30 feet of each other. the only way to use a "key" is to actually use the "specific fob" by removing a small panel on the underdash area and physically plugging in the "fob" (just like a usb device-port) to detect & match the security code and then physically turn the "fob" (just like you would a "key") 1/4 clockwise to start the car when the "fob" internal battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

Am I the only one that thinks Charlie did this himself?? He was probably drunk or on drugs both times and crashed. Called someone to help him out and then says someone stole his car. He's a piece of sh**!

has nobody considered the fact that he's a drunk idiot who's crashed his own cars twice and just leaves the scene to avoid the DUI?

Now, I know Charlie has done some stupid things in the past, but I don't think he would fake a car theft. Why would he? He doesn't necessarily need the insurance money. But if he was going to use any insurance company, he would probably choose State Farm. Check out http://whyagent.com it gives endless reasons to get a State Farm agent.(FYI I’m spreading this link for State Farm)
