What A Mechanic Discovered Hidden In This Cop's Car Surprised The Entire Police Department.
This Took Place In Illinois
Getting a surprise from the mechanics usually spells bad news. This is followed by extensive work required in addition to a bill with high charges. You may have a good mechanic story with a surprise ending but nothing will match what was found in a squad car in McHenry County, Illinois. You will be shocked when you find what they discovered.
The deputy sheriff is part of the McHenry County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) in Illinois, employing just over 400 people. The sheriffs at MCSO are described on their website as "conservators of peace." The officers all have their own interesting stories they share with family and friends. Still, this officer went home with a story he will be sharing for years to come.
Returning To Work
The deputy who has chosen to remain anonymous had returned from a short vacation from serving and protecting his community. On his first day back, he realized his police car was having troubles driving properly. It wasn't a huge concern that something was wrong but he knew he had to take in for repair. Not the best day to return to work. This brave officer had no idea this was no regular appointment to the mechanic.
It's Only A Broken Headlight
The deputy sheriff took the squad car for standard maintenance in addition to replacing a headlight on the passenger side. The light did not work even though the bulb wasn't dead nor was the light broken. The man in blue assumed the repair was going to be standard, hence, have his squad car returned to him shortly. He had no idea what the real problem actually was.
Finding Something Out Of The Ordinary
As soon as the mechanic started working on the vehicle he found something strange. Mechanics see unusual stuff all the time but nothing like this. Deputy Sandra Rogers of the MCSO told reporters "The mechanic began replacing the headlight and noticed that the wire had been chewed," she revealed on June 23, 2017. The question became, what could have caused that? There were many possible explanations to that question.
Rodents Are Probably The Culprits
Fraying of the wires in a vehicle can happen for a lot of reasons. Rodents are known to get into cars and chew the wires, consequently, making it expensive to repair. The reality was whatever caused the problem, it needed to be fixed. The mechanic continued working but as he looked further he was puzzled even more. It became the most interesting broken headlight ever.
