Colorado Sheriff's Office Roasts Guy Who Tried To Steal A Jet 'Grand Theft Auto'-Style At Airport

Douglas County Sheriff's Office/Facebook

A sheriff's office in Colorado had the internet cackling when the department posted a snarky online recap after a man was arrested for hopping the fence at a local airport and attempting to steal a commercial jet.

In the words of the Douglas Country Sheriff's Office, "video games are not real."

According to WKRN, 31-year-old Sterlin Antonio Love leaped over the south fence of Colorado's Centennial Airport and approached the jet.

Love, who allegedly planned to take the plane all the way to Hawaii, was quickly pushed off the plane by the crew after he tried to get up the stairs.

Unfortunately for Love, a Denver Police Department helicopter was flying around the airport handling a separate situation at the exact same time.

The chopper responded to the scene involving Love, took him into custody, and then handed him over to sheriffs once they arrived.

Love was charged with a felony count of first-degree aggravated motor vehicle theft and misdemeanor second-degree criminal trespassing.

The saga only continued when the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Facebook page became involved.


They couldn't help but find some humor in the failed attempted theft.

"Today officially begins a series that we'd like to call 'Note to Self.' This note is based on an actual incident (this week) where a suspect male breached the secure perimeter to the runway at Centennial Airport in an attempt to steal a jet and fly to Hawaii."
"We've all been at the point where we needed a vacation, but this took it a little far… note to self… video games are not real… stealing a jet will not go well."

People who read the post were in stitches.

A similar commentary was posted on the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Twitter page.

People who saw that were stunned too.



Here's hoping the snarky content will prevent future plane thefts not only in Colorado, but in airports everywhere.
