DELPHI, Ind (WLFI)—Delphi Police are investigating a rash of car thefts.
"This is an unusual situation,” said Delphi Chief of Police Steve Mullin.
There were three different car thefts over the weekend. Residents like Hilaria Serrano and Brody MaCurdy had their vehicle stolen in broad daylight.
"I came down here to start my car and his car was missing,” said Serrano. “So, I stopped where I was and was like, oh my goodness this isn't happening."
Hilaria didn't think anything of it when she heard a car outside start. Although, when she came out to start her car she noticed that where her boyfriend's truck is normally parked, was gone.
Brody MaCurdy is the owner of the truck that was stolen. There were a few things that caught his attention.
"My transmission is a little messed up, so when you put it in drive it defaults to fourth gear,” said MaCurdy. “So he tried to gun it and get out of here and it just revved up a bunch."
The truck was stolen on Sunday morning. When the thieves finally drove the truck off, they didn't realize they would drive past security cameras at a local gas station.
"I said, I can check for you no problem,” said Owner of CITGO gas station Minesh Patel.
Minesh Patel owns the CITGO gas station near Hilaria and Brody's home. Brody knows Patel and gets gas there every morning.
"He first called me yesterday and said my truck was stolen and you guys have cameras so I want to check the outside,” said Patel.
Patel was able to pull up a video of a truck that appeared to be passing by the gas station during the hours MaCurdy's truck was stolen.
"You could see the road that passes the gas station and we could see his truck for just a little bit going past,” said Serrano.
The couple hopes the security video and shared posts on Facebook will gain recognition, in hopes of getting his truck back.
"You wonder, you wonder why, why me I guess,” said Brody.
Investigation on this vehicle theft is still ongoing.
Chief Mullin said car owners should continue locking their doors and make sure valuables aren't being left in their vehicles.
If you have any information regarding Brody's truck or other stolen vehicles you can call the Carroll County Sheriff's Department at (765) 564-2413.
