Stolen Jeep driven 3,400 miles from Miami to Washington State in two days

Police in the town of Blaine, Washington, near the Canadian border found a Jeep in a bank car park that had been stolen 3,400 miles away in Miami, Florida, just two days earlier.

The Jeep was reported to the Miami Police Department as stolen sometime between June 30 and July 1. On July 2 it was found by Blaine Police.

Police don't know who took the black 2012 Jeep Patriot, or why they sped from one corner of the US to the other.

They found some clothing inside the car and the exterior had minor damage to the passenger-side fender, but little other evidence. Meanwhile, Blaine Towing has the Jeep and is trying to contact the owner to send it back home.

No, that can't be true, that would be an average speed of 112kph every hour for 2 days, no refuelling time allowed, no toilet stops.
To get an average speed of 112 you would have to travel at around 160kph on every straight piece of road.
I reckon the aliens abducted it for a probe, mistakenly thinking it was one of the main species on the planet.

Or in old money, that's about 50 hours solid driving at 68 mph.

Which is unlikely.

I wondered if perhaps the Jeep had been cloned.

Or the owner who sold it wanted to make sure they had a good head start before reporting it stolen to the police/insurance co.

This person or persons, did not want to go through security at an airport. Because you can get a plane ticket for less than what it would cost for the gas needed to make that trip.
