Thief caught on camera stealing from auto lot


BY DECEMBER 31ST. *MIK*) NEW AT FIVE… A BOLD THIEF CAUGHT ON CAMERA AT A CAMBY AUTO SHOP. *BROOK*) POLICE NEED YOUR HELP FINDING A MAN WHO GOT AWAY WITH CAR BATTERIES AND RADIOS. WISH TV’S ALEAH HORDGES JOINS US WITH MORE. ALEAH YOU SPOKE WITH THE BUSINESS OWNER TODAY? *ALEA*) I SPOKE WITH JASON MONROE THIS MORNING AT CARE AUTO ON KENTUCKY AVENUE. JASON SAYS IT HAPPENED EARLY FRIDAY MORNING, BUT TELLS ME THERE’S MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE THEFT THAT SURPIRSED HIM… SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS CAPTURED THE MAN ROAMING THE LOT..GOING INTO 11 CARS.. OVER 4 HOURS… THE BUSINESS OWNER SAYS THE THIEF TOOK HIS TIME STEALING 4 RADIOS AND SEVERAL LARGE CAR BATTERIES. AT LEAST 11 CARS WERE HIT IN TOTAL. CARE AUTO SELLS USED CARS AND TRAILERS. THAT MEANS, THEY HAVE TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE TO CONTINUE BUSINESS WITH THEM. BUT INSTEAD, MORE TIME AND LABOR IS BEING SPENT TO FIX THEM. (( THAT’S KIND OF DISHEARTENING BECAUSE IT DOES SLOW THE PROCESS DOWN, YOU KNOW EVERYTHING WAS UP FRONT AND NOW HAS TO GO BACK AROUND SO WE GET RADIOS PUT INT THEM AND GET THEM BACK READY FOR SALE. BATTERIES OF COURSE YOU GOTTA GET BATTERIES TO PUT THEM IN THAT’S JUST AN EXTRA COST THAT’S ALREADY EXPENSIVE TO RUN A LOT ANYWAYS.)) RIGHT NOW THERE ARE 16 CAMERAS ON THE LOT…. NOW, CARE AUTO PLANS TO ADD SECURITY LIGHTS ABOVE THOSE CAMERAS. THE OWNER SAYS SMALLER SUPPLIES WERE ALSO STOLEN FROM INSIDE THE CARS–BUT THE LOSS OF THE RADIOS AND BATTERIES WILL COST THE SHOP A COUPLE THOUSAND DOLLARS TO REPLACE. *ALEA*) IF THE MAN SHOWN IN THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO LOOKS FAMILIAR.. YOU’RE ASKED TO CONTACT THE MORGAN COUNTY
