Stolen Mercedes recovered

04/11/2013

The last of four cars stolen two weekends ago has been recovered and authorities are now pursuing links between several auto crimes that took place late last month, Marin Sheriff’s Lieutenant Jamie Scardina said. DiAnn Montemayor’s red Mercedez-Benz was found at a vacated house on Vision Road that the owner discovered had been occupied by a person or people with stolen goods. The home had been kept tidy. Ms. Montemayor’s car was stolen while she was out of town during a weekend that saw a rash of burglarized cars and trucks, including a total of ten reported on Friday and Saturday in Inverness, Point Reyes Station and over the hill. “It feels invasive, but I don’t know—I think every once in a while some weirdos do something,” Ms. Montemayor said. Her car is now malfunctioning. “It won’t stop accelerating. It might be just the vacuum tube.” Many of the burglarized cars were unlocked and even had keys in them, and items like insurance documents, other paperwork and wine were removed. Three of the stolen vehicles were recovered shortly thereafter.
