It wasn't just the BMW's engine that was purring.
Jason Pitts, 19, was taken into custody Monday after he stole a woman's white BMW at a rest stop off Interstate 24 in Lee's Summit, Mo., the day before, according to the Hickman County Sheriff's Office.
A woman was reported to have been with Pitts during the alleged heist, but it's believed he dropped her in a state along his route. At one point, the 19-year-old allegedly hit 132 mph while driving the stolen vehicle.
Eventually, Pitts reportedly crashed the vehicle in Clarksville, Tenn., on the highway near Exit No. 1 and ran into the woods.
The sheriff's office said Tuesday deputies found Pitts, who supposedly gave them a false identity, in Hickman County. He was arrested and charged with criminal impersonation and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The kittens were said to be doing fine in the care of Montgomery County Animal Care and Control. The owner reportedly plans to pick up the animals soon.
