Thief drives car into stranger’s garage, begins stealing

Local News

WEST JORDAN, Utah (News4Utah) – Police say a garage was left open, and that’s all a thief needed to spot an opportunity.

On Tuesday, around 9 a.m., video shows a shiny white SUV roll into a spacious West Jordan garage.

The woman who walks out is not the homeowner, according to police. But she certainly acted like she owned the place.

“It appears that a thief found, just happened upon this open garage,” said Sgt. Dan Roberts with West Jordan Police.

The woman “then brazenly got out and then selected about a dozen different valuable items that were worth over a thousand dollars,” said Roberts.

The woman was inside the garage for about two minutes as she grabs various items, including tools, and puts them in the SUV.

“Nobody is safe — you can’t think that oh, I’ve got a wonderful neighborhood,” said Roberts.

He says it’s important for people to write down serial numbers of expensive items they purchase, just in case they ever get stolen.
