Thief Steals Car, Goes On Shopping Spree, Then Returns Car
DENVER (CBS4) – A thief who stole a car went on a shopping spree with the victim’s money before bringing the vehicle right back to where he took it from.
Last week someone sneaked into personal trainer Jim Kemeny’s gym near Interstate 25 and Clarkson Street and stole his wallet and car keys.
“I went out and my car was gone,” said Kemeny.
The thief used the car to go on a shopping spree with Kemeny’s credit cards.
“It was $484.15, and then he went to Subway. I guess he was a little hungry as well,” said Kemeny.
Kemeny’s car was always parked in spot 22 and when he got to work on Monday his stolen car was parked right in that exact spot.
“It was parked right here and returned right here. The car was open, the keys in the middle of the seats. The battery was dead and it was out of fuel,” said Kemeny.
There was also a $75 parking ticket from Greenwood Village inside the car.
“Was he a nice guy? I don’t think so,” said Kemeny.
The thief even left the business card of his parole officer behind making it much easier for police to track him down.
Denver Police said they don’t recall a car thief ever voluntarily returning the car.
Authorities are still searching for the suspect.
