Police release video of 39th car stolen in Moline this year


Police released a video of a car stolen last week in Moline with a reminder to “lock your cars and take the keys with you.”

The video shows a car being stolen — the 39th in Moline this year — from a gas station on Saturday. A car pulls up, the passenger gets out and jumps into a car left running at the gas pump and takes off.

The entire video is 18 seconds. Moline Police told Local 4 News it happened at the Phillips 66 on 19th Avenue and 1st Street A.

“These thieves are quick and their pursuit of victim vehicles is relentless,” Moline Police said in a tweet. “Don’t leave your vehicles running and unattended.”
