Car Thief Goes For Magic Carpet Ride

Between 10:30 and 10:40 a.m. on Jan. 5, a thief stole a red 2007 Kia Optima from the parking lot at the Highland Park Whole Foods Market on Lomo Alto Drive.

OK, so that alone wouldn’t necessarily warrant a blog post, but this next bit had us soaring. Inside the trunk of the running car (that’s right the car was left running), there was an $8,000 Persian rug.

It’s Monday and my brain is probably still on the weekend setting, but I couldn’t wait until we posted the whole police report to share that one.

In the words of the The Whitest Kids U’ Know, what did we learn here today?

Don’t leave your car running when you pop into a store, even the Whole Foods near HP. And don’t leave an $8,000 rug in the car.

OK, enjoy the rest of your day and please make good choices.
