That is a great move!
Some of the stories I find a bit confusing.
1) I didn’t think you could withdrawl $5000 from a cash machine. In all my life the bank has never let me take more than $600 from the machine in one day.
2) A company town car would most likely be <10 years old and have power windows and door locks. All such cars have doors that automatically lock once you start driving. He would have to have been in park for the doors to unlock automatically, or, he unlocked the door.
Just saying, there is more to the story(s).
