Well, that’s terrible. People spent their time and money in restoring their favorite cars, and it is a violation for another person to take what isn’t theirs.

This Vons is notorious for people walking around and trying to steal stuff. My husband and I saw a couple, male and female, walking around suspiciously looking inside of cars not too long ago. He stood by and watched them while I went to get the manager. By the time the police came, they were gone of course. There are people that try and get into unlocked vehicles and will literally steal anything sitting inside. Phone chargers, eyeglasses, loose change, clothing, Christimas gifts this time of year! If this classic car owner left his door open and maybe even the key inside, well…..
