Police: Man stole car, used it to commit car burglaries in same area

Crime spree happened in middle of morning rush


SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are investigating a string of crimes that were committed by what seems to be a bold crook.

They say that man stole a car from a driveway in the Canyon Parke subdivision, then used that stolen vehicle to drive around and break into other vehicles.

The crime spree happened in the middle of the busy morning rush Thursday, as Heather Guckian was preparing to go to leave for work shortly before 7 a.m.

“My son came home from the gym and when he walked inside, he thought that my other son was in the car,” she said. “(He) said that he had seen someone in our car.”

Guckian’s minivan was left a mess, with its contents spilled all over her driveway.

She wasn’t sure right away whether anything of value had been stolen.

In the meantime, her husband went out looking for the crook.
