The Near Eastside has had a rash of auto thefts in the past few weeks, including two in Cottage Home. One of our neighborhood residents happened to catch the thieves on camera….Do you recognize the two men captured in this surveillance video? They stole a car and items out of a work truck parked in the 600 Block of Dorman Street around 3am on Oct. 30th. The van belonged to the victim and items were stolen out of it. The car to the right (Cadillac Wagon) was the vehicle that was stolen. Help us identify these two, so we can end the recent rash of car thefts and break-ins in the neighborhood. Here’s a link to the entire video. There was also an article on RTV6 about the thefts.
