A stolen Chevrolet Spark motor vehicle was recovered hours after it was stolen from Bois D’Orange, Gros Islet, according to reports.
A reliable source told St. Lucia News Online that the vehicle was discovered late Tuesday evening after it was spotted earlier by a civilian.
The Spark was reportedly stolen around 5 a.m. Tuesday. St. Lucia News Online posted an article on the theft in which it revealed the vehicle’s registration number.
“It was spotted going towards the Ciceron area,” the source said. “It was being driven with the number plate on and a civilian spotted it and notified us. We found it parked with nobody inside and a screwdriver in the ignition at around 10 pm last night (Tuesday) and we recovered it.”
The source said it was “very odd” to have found a vehicle with its original number (license) plate. Normally, thieves would replace the original with a fake one or one from another vehicle.
“It looked like he was coming back for it because the screwdriver was still in the ignition,” the source added.
Luckily, the vehicle was found mostly intact, however, the locks were damaged.
No one has been arrested in connection with the theft.
