Timothy Frederick Knight (pictured), who was already facing auto theft charges, had no means of transportation to get to his latest court arraignment, so he did what he does best: steal a car to get there, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The 53-year-old San Francisco resident, who has seven prior convictions, was arrested last February 15th in Daly City on suspicion of possessing a stolen vehicle. Knight was then released on a $50,000 bond for the theft charge and given a hearing date of April 3.
Prior to his hearing date, Knight, who does not own a car, reportedly stole a Honda vehicle in order to appear at his preliminary court hearing. Knight’s case was continued, so he allegedly got back in to the allegedly stolen wheels in an attempt to drive away from the courthouse.
What the convicted car thief did not know was that his stolen vehicle was rigged by the Vehicle Theft Task Force who had secretly placed a tracker on the car.
Reportedly, police noticed the Honda while it was parked and saw that the ignition had been punched and there was a screwdriver still laying on the floor.
Task Force agents arrested Knight as he tried to drive away from the courthouse.
Knight reportedly pleaded not guilty to the new car theft charges. He appeared in court on Wednesday to set a June jury trial date and has to appear in court yet again on Friday for a preliminary hearing regarding previous charges.
For this latest caper, Knight has been placed behind bars and the bail has been doubled and then some at $165,000.

How ironic.

Some people simply are not capable of learning from their mistakes.

"What the convicted car thief did not know was that his stolen vehicle was rigged by the Vehicle Theft Task Force who had secretly placed a tracker on the car."

Was that before or after he stole it? Like did he just happen to steal a bait car or did they place the device there after seeing the screwdriver and damage to the ignition?

After: he stole the car the day before, then parked it somewhere; the police found the car and attached a tracker to it; the day after, he drove the stolen car to court, then he attempted to drive back home in the same car:at that point the police arrested him
