A man's car is stolen. Before he calls the police, he calls the local radio station.

Does the man address to the thief?
Does the man think the thief is sitting in his car with the radio turned on?
Does he, in any way, set out a trap for the thief?

Did he call the radio station AFTER the car was the stolen?
Was the man whose car was stolen the same 'he' who called the radio station?
Did he call the radio station in reference to a type of game?
For a song request?
Because the person who stole the car was actually at the radio station?
Because the person who stole the car was headed to the radio station?
Because he thought by calling the radio station he would then find out in some way who stole the car?
Did the man who stole the car do so because he wanted to listen to the radio?

Is the call to the radio station connected with the theft of the car?

Wild guess:
Does he say something to warn the thief, because the car is dangerous?
Like "There is a bomb in the car, witch will detonate soon", or "Be careful, the brakes don't work properly"?

Wild guess:
Does he say something to warn the thief, because the car is dangerous? Yes.
Like "There is a bomb in the car, witch will detonate soon", or "Be careful, the brakes don't work properly"? Precisely.
I thought this might go quickly, good job Sobs.
