Suspect Allegedly Steals Car Caught on Camera

ID #16-647

Ahwatukee, Arizona – A brazen bandit is caught on camera in an Ahwatukee neighborhood.

The guy stole a woman’s car, while she was unloading groceries. Two neighbors caught the jaw-dropping sight on camera.

The ordeal unfolded near 40th Street and Chandler Boulevard, in the middle of the afternoon. The man was able to get away with the car, because the woman left her fob in the car, when she took a phone call.

“All of the sudden we had an individual with a car being stolen out of their garage,” said Stephen Edwards, who also lives in the community of Lakewood, just around the corner from where it happened.

“I put cameras up a year ago, because I had a neighbor parking in my driveway,” he said.

Those cameras picked up video of a man walking down the street just before the woman’s car was stolen.

“The timing was perfect that this guy and the time she got home from her groceries… he just walked in her garage, pulled right out and took off,” said Edwards.

Another neighbor’s security camera showed the white car speeding past his house.

It’s hard to see the crook’s face through the tinted windows, but in the first video you can clearly see his face. In the second, you can see the driver is also wearing a white shirt. The homeowner of the second camera says it never picked up anyone else walking down the street around that time.

“We later found out from Phoenix police that a second car was involved,” he said. “They dumped it at the parking lot, used her credit card, filled up the gas in the Audi, 2014, and took off and right now we’re trying to find out who the perpetrator is.”

That all took place at a Fry’s gas station nearby.

“We’re all feeling unsafe, we’re all feeling unnerved, I’ve got metal doors now,” said Edwards. “We want our security back… we want a car patrolling the area… we want somebody at night.”

Phoenix police told the woman and her husband they’re not alone. Apparently there’s been another car stolen in the area within the past 36 hours or so.
