Erin Hatzi shared surveillance footage from outside of her home as a woman entered her red Subaru Impreza on Tuesday night before driving off. “We were really confused because it didn’t seem like the normal actions of a car thief,” Hatzi told KGW. “You wouldn’t think they’d sit there in idle in the owner’s driveway for two or three minutes.” Hatzi and her husband reported the strange theft to police when, just a day later the situation became even more bizarre. Police stopped a woman attempting to return the car outside of Hatzi’s home as her husband was taking out the garbage. The woman said she had been sent to the neighborhood to pick up her friend’s car and accidentally took Hatzi’s vehicle instead, as she explained in a note left inside the vehicle along with $30 gas money.
The Note: “Hello, So sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock and she came back with your car,” the note read. “I did not see the car until this morning and I said, ‘That is not my car.’ There is some cash for gas and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you. If you need to speak further, with me, I am ******* and my number is ………. So so sorry for this mistake.” Police told Hatzi older Subaru keys are interchangeable and can occasionally be used to open different cars. “I’m not entirely sure where the car spent the evening, but it came back with a nice note and a weird story,” she said. “My car had a little adventure.”
You know its bad where you live when
You check Craig’s list and see a section titled: “Stolen car for sale:”
I was coming home from a business trip lugging a couple of cases through the parking garage of the airport. As looked around a big black car pulled up to me and squealed to a stop, the driver rolled down the window and said “Get in and I will take you to your car.” I said, “No thanks, I can get there easily myself.” The man in the car barked, “Come on, get in” and opened the door on the passenger side of his car. I started to scan the area for a security guard or an emergency phone. Then the driver’s face softened to a plea as he explained, “I have been driving around this garage for half an hour and I cannot find a space, I want to take yours.”
Recently, I woke up to find that two of my car’s tires had been stolen.
When the police officer arrived, he asked, “When were you last driving the car?”
“Last night at 11:00,” I said.
“And the tires were on it then?”
