WATCH: Thief takes off in local musician’s SUV

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Folks at the Brass Rail are asking for help in identifying the man that stole a local musician’s vehicle.
Surveillance footage released by the Brass Rail shows a white car, what appears to be a white Chevy, pull up next to Jared Andrews running SUV. A male suspect is seen exiting that vehicle and driving off in Jared’s vehicle.

Adams News spoke with Andrews, who says it happened in a matter of 5 minutes. Andrews said that Brass Rail employees started their vehicles early Saturday morning after closing down and just went back in to clock-out. Andrews filed a police report and then shared this surveillance footage with the officer handling the case later in the day.

He says he wasn’t given any ideas on where his vehicle might have been taken but added that multiple people in the area, as many as 9 others, had their vehicles stolen Friday night into Saturday morning.

If you recognize the man or the vehicle in this footage or can help police in any way, call police or Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP.

Adams News has reached out to Fort Wayne Police and will update this story with any future comment.
