Fishing for cars?

A couple of fishing buddies from Delaware have been catching more than just bass. They've been helping police reel in cars.

Larry Newirth and Dan Cathell spotted a white BMW 750 sedan on June 17 in New Castle, DE. Then on Friday, they found a late-model Honda Accord.

Police say the cars were stolen and abandoned. No arrests have been made.

Newirth, a 63-year-old retired carpenter, jokes that he and Cathell better stop finding cars or the police will think they're the ones stealing them.

Cathell, a 44-year-old millwright, says he hopes the thieves stop dumping the cars from the boat ramp so police don't close the dock to the public.
