BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) Police in the town of Blaine, Washington, near the Canadian border found a car in a bank parking lot on July 2 that had been stolen in Miami just about two days earlier.

The Bellingham Herald reports (http://bit.ly/U6IYRX ) the thief was in a hurry. According to Google Maps it would take 50 hours to drive the 3,400 miles nonstop.

Police don't know who took the black 2012 Jeep Patriot or why they sped from one corner of the country to the other.
