Thief Abandons Car Stolen While Warming Up in SW Columbus
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Police have recovered a car that was stolen while warming up in a driveway early Thursday morning -- but the thief remains at large.
The unidentified suspect ditched the car at Sunoco on Eakin Road in Southwest Columbus following a short police chase, and then fled on foot at approximately 1:30 a.m.
The chase began when a state trooper attempted to stop the car, which was allegedly stolen from a woman's driveway a short distance from the Sunoco where it was eventually abandoned.
Police often warn drivers to avoid leaving their vehicles running while unattended to prevent thefts.
Anyone with information that may help investigators identify the suspect is encouraged to contact the Columbus Division of Police at 614-645-4545.
