Thief Steals Top Court's Luxury Sedan

The Supreme Arbitration Court was without a car Thursday after an unknown thief made off with its luxury sedan overnight.

A 43-year-old court driver parked the Nissan Teana on Wednesday evening near 9 Sevastopolsky Prospekt in southern Moscow, Interfax reported, citing the police. But when he returned for it in the morning, he found it missing.

He alerted the police about the theft.

The car was insured for 1.5 million rubles (about $47,000), Interfax said. Moscow retail prices for the model start at about 1 million rubles.

A criminal case has been opened in connection to the theft.

The Supreme Arbitration Court is the main arbitrator for commercial disputes in Russia.
