Here’s a clear example of why you SHOULD never, ever, EVER leave your keys in your vehicle. The following video shows how fast your vehicle can be stolen – even right in front of you!
An apparent recent car burglary and theft occurred on the evening of December 30th as the owner of a black Jeep Cherokee parked his vehicle behind a business at 3579 Highway 50 East. When the owner went inside a young male showed up while the business’s automated video camera was activated. The male briefly looked inside the Jeep through a window but then walked off. But less than a minute later he returned, got inside the Jeep, started it up and began to pull out of the parking spot. Just then the owner comes outside and tries to stop him but the male guns the motor and takes off.
Carson City Deputies are looking for the male and likely the car. If you know who this person is, call the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 775.887.2677 or Secret Witness at 775.322.4900.
