Woman's vehicle stolen while she pays for gas
Ypsilanti police are investigating a motor vehicle theft reported Friday afternoon when a woman went inside a gas station to pay and someone stole her vehicle, police said.
Lt. Deric Gress said police responded at 1:30 p.m. Friday to the 1300 block of Washtenaw Avenue for the incident. Gress said the woman left her keys in her vehicle when she went inside to pay for gas.
“A subject walked by her car and drove away,” he said.
The woman didn’t leave the vehicle running, but left the keys in the vehicle while she went inside.
Information in a police summary released Saturday stated the vehicle was recovered at a hit-and-run accident scene several hours later. Gress said he didn’t have any information about the hit-and-run accident immediately available Sunday afternoon.
No suspect description was released, but investigators are reviewing video of the incident, Gress said.
