    My in laws catera got stolen!!!

    Okay, this incident happened at our church parking lot around 6:45PM today. My father in law was getting out of the car and some guy shows up from no where (fully drunk) threatens my father in law, grabs his arm and snatches the key from him. My father in law came running inside the church saying "someone is stealing his car" and I was inside the church when this all happened, so I stepped out of the building and saw the guy backing out taking off with the Catera. I ran inside the building grabbed my keys and tried to follow him and he was no where to be found. Also, there are so many smalls streets and main roads so no way of knowing which way he went.


    Called the police and they came by took the reports...etc.

    Also, this is the car I have worked on several times and it was running good so far. I want to say thank you for all your help and lets hope someone finds it soon and in one piece!!!

    Maybe in anticipation of the "who would steal a Catera" jokes?

    Yes...that is what we are praying and hoping for. The other problem is the there was several other keys in the car so now we have to change all the locks...etc.

    That really sucks! But be glad he was drunk and not some desperate guy with a gun, if he's alright you have come out on top.
    I have had a car stolen before and got it back and I felt violated ever time I drove it thereafter.
    hope you find it. It's more than likely sitting on an abandon road, jumped in went somewhere close to his home and dumped it..

    If you have theft ins, better they don't find it.

    More importantly hope he doesn't hurt someone while driving the car.

    yes, hoping he doesn't hurt anyone.

    The officer said, most likely in 2 days they will know for sure and the insurance company said if it's not found in 7 days then they will pay whatever the car is worth.

    Well tell them that the car is priceless! However don't tell them about this site! If you get more than a grand for the car, consider yourself lucky!

    It probably isn't far from where it was stolen.

    Good news!!! The officer called us now and the Catera has been located.

    We don't have all the details yet but it was located around 20 miles from our area.

    Good news. Better news if she's still in one piece. Fingers crossed.

    Yep, let's hope so. The only information we have right now that it's drivable and under investigation. It could be sometime next week before we could have it or get more information on the case.
