    2014 Mirage stolen & recovered

    My little city's only currently confirmed Mirage was in the news this week!



    Stolen vehicle recovered

    A King Street resident called Brockville police Tuesday morning to report that her 2014 Green Mitsubishi Mirage had been taken from the rear parking lot of her building sometime overnight.

    She was only without her vehicle for a short time, however, as Leeds Ontario Provincial Police officers located the stolen vehicle at the Super 8 Motel just east of the city.

    Police arrested Thomas Chevrier, 29, of no fixed address, who faces six counts of break and enter, two counts of theft under $5,000 and theft of a motor vehicle. He is scheduled to appear for a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brockville.

    The break-in charges are related to incidents at houses just east of Brockville. The vehicle has since been returned to the owner.

    I see this car at least weekly, and chat with the owner every other month or so (I often see her walking her dog in the park). I'll have to ask her how the car was stolen. Keys in it? If I had to bet...

    It would have been a real shame if this car had disappeared from my life!

    That's an ES with pushbutton start. Leaving the key inside and door(s) unlocked just might be the only way that car is gonna start & move. Ick.

    She's lucky the thief isn't real smart and didn't drive the only bright green little car in town further away.

    That's what I was thinking. This car had to have the keys in it and be unlocked or something. Or the thief was color blind.

    Yeah, given that the thief stole a very recognizable colored car (dumb), I don't think he would have brains enough to defeat the built-in security system.

    Know what else I just realized that makes this extra unusual:

    The car has a manual transmission.

    I thought that made a car pretty much theft-proof these days!
