IDAHO FALLS – An Idaho Falls woman is asking for help finding her stolen vehicle.
Jenasee South is a nurse at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center and she tells EastIdahoNews.com she noticed her car was missing around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday.
“I worked the night shift from 7 p.m. last night to 7 a.m. this morning. I clocked out at 7:15 and went out to my car to go home and it was gone,” South says. “I left my keys in my car and the door unlocked, unfortunately.”
Surveillance video shows someone searching the parking lot and driving away with the car around midnight, according to South.
“They were … obviously looking to steal a car and mine was very easy,” she says.
South’s car is a white 2018 Honda Pilot with license plate number 8BMD545. There were lots of facemasks hanging on the mirror, she says, and a United Auto sticker on the back.
Idaho Falls Police Department spokeswoman Jessica Clements says the vehicle was reported stolen about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. The vehicle theft is one of several that occurred in Idaho Falls during the night, she says.
“Two vehicle thefts, one stolen license plate,” Clements says. “Unlocked vehicles are a big problem in our area lately. Some stolen vehicles, but we have had a massive amount of items stolen out of vehicles in the last few weeks.”
South is reminding you to lock your car, remove your valuables and learn from her mistake.
If you happen to see South’s car or know where it might be, call IFPD at (208) 529-1200.
