Hitchhiker Steals Suburban While Helping Motorist Pays for Gasoline
Nebraska City police are looking for a hitchhiker suspected of stealing a vehicle after the owner stopped to give him a ride.
A Kansas man picked up the man, who he described as homeless and known by the name of "Grim," and stopped at Tag's One Stop to get gasoline.
When the driver and his wife went into the store to pay for the gas, Grim drove away in the white Chevrolet Suburban. Perhaps with a destination of Council Bluffs, Colorado or Oregon.
The hitchhiker had been riding with the Kansas man for over a day.
Nebraska City police also report the theft of a Jeep Wrangler on the 1200 block of Central Avenue.
The Jeep, owned by Alan Teten, had been left unlocked overnight.
