Don't call it theft. More like "holding it for ransom".

Police affiliated tow companies are prowling metro-Detroit (and Ann Arbor) streets looking for cars to high-jack and hold for ransom says this Detroit News article. Back in the old days when we all rode horses they used call what these tow companies are doing horse theft.  The remedy for that problem in those days was to routinely hang horse thieves, just to show how seriously this crime was taken. Just sayin'.
