DENVER (CBS4)– Police are investigating after a man had his vehicle stolen twice in one week.
Last Tuesday Blake Douglas left his 2009 Jeep Cherokee parked at the Sheridan light rail station.
“I thought I was losing my mind,” Douglas said.
When he got back from work, it was gone.
“I park here in the garage figuring its safer there’s a lot of cameras around,” he said.
He filed a report with Denver police hoping the unique qualities of the vehicle including a lift and roof rack would make it easy to spot.
He was right, and a week later investigators called to say it had been found at an apartment complex a few miles away.
The stereo was missing, the roof rack gone even the grill was ripped off the front.
“I had to get a ride there and then get a ride to the impound lot. Once I got that I had to go into work so I drove to a different light rail station,” he said.
Despite parking at a different light rail station, this time on Oak Street in Lakewood, Douglas was met with the same ending.
“When I got off of work then I went back to that light rail station and the vehicle was stolen again.”
He knows getting it back a second time is a long shot but he is asking that everyone keep an eye out.
“Obviously I would like it back,” he said.
Despite his unfortunate situation… Douglas says he can’t help but laugh.
“When I tell the story it’s really hard not to have a smile on my face because I think it’s just absolutely ridiculous what are the chances of this?” Douglas said.
Adding to his ordeal, Douglas had to pay $120 for the tow and impound fee.
Police say they are reviewing the video hoping to identify a suspect or suspects.
