Thief uses tow truck to steal vehicle outside doctor's office in southeast Houston
Thief uses a tow truck to steal vehicle outside a doctor's office in southeast Houston. What makes this robbery so strange is that the thief didn't break into the vehicle -- he towed it away. Dr. Joseph Sleiman, of Clinic 45 in southeast Houston, said his janitor's car was towed away by what he described as a professional thief. The thief probably made that truck to steal cars and tow them away from their owners, Sleiman said. His sister-in-law, Nohemi Aguilar, said his 1996 Ford Explorer was towed away at 5 a.m. by a thief riding in a pickup truck.
