Photo by M. Hartman
M. Hartman and his family had been living in Eagle Rock less than two weeks when he parked his Honda in front of his new home, locked the car doors and anti-theft lock and then went inside. Next morning, the car was gone, only to be found a day later after the vehicle (pictured above) was found upside down by the southbound 2 Freeway. Here are the details Hartman provided via after he returned home late one evening:
Got home, parked IN FRONT OF MY FRONT ROOM WINDOW, on our very well lit street. Put my CLUB on ..locked it and went inside and went to sleep. That night I had decided to sleep on the couch as to not disturb my new-born and mommy in the bedroom. Wake up at 7am and the Honda was gone … fast forward 24hrs … CHP found it at 3am upside down just past the Verdugo exit on the 2 fwy. As you can see from the photo below, who ever stole my car drank a case of Budwisers (found in the wreckage) and totaled it. He /she was lucky to have survived.
Apparently Hartman’s Honda was one of the 14 vehicles stolen in Eagle Rock last month, according to Patch
