Woman’s stolen car found with others, police investigating possible connection

Updated: Jun 27, two thousand seventeen – 11:21 PM

There were a number of things missing from the car, including half of her daughter’s kindergarten artwork, but Roberta Simoni is still grateful she got her car back.

«It certainly makes you feel very violated,» Simoni said. She spent Tuesday afternoon scrubbing and cleaning out her car after eventually getting it back.

«There was nothing. Everything was fully taken out of my car. There’s pictures gone. My daughter`s artwork. Not even half of it was in there.»

The car was stolen from Roberta’s driveway on Connie Drive in Ross Township Friday morning.

The crime was caught on her home surveillance camera.

Tuesday morning, she learned the car was found at a gas station in O`Hara Township, along with two other stolen cars.

But getting it back wasn’t so effortless after a tow company picked it up.

“I was unaware that I was going to have to pay over $200 to retrieve my car,» Simoni said.

Very first the victim of a crime, then she was penalized for it until someone stepped up and anonymously paid the bill for her.

«It’s indeed nice to know that people like you are out there. I indeed, truly appreciate it. Thank you again.»

County police are investigating to determine if the two crimes are connected.

A woman told Channel eleven News that her car was stolen early Friday morning from outside her house in Ross Township.

Surveillance movie shows two guys going through Roberta Simoni`s white Chevrolet Cobalt on Connie Drive. They then drove away after backing it into a truck parked in the driveway and a post.

Simoni said she filed a police report and was told that it wasn`t the very first car break-in they had heard about.

While Simoni admitted that she left her doors unlocked, she would like to get what was taken back — specifically, her daughter`s irreplaceable artwork.

«My daughter embarked kindergarten this year, everything she made by palm is in a big folder in my trunk,» said Simoni.

While she and her family were sleeping early Friday morning, she said the thieves went onto her family`s property looking for effortless access to a car.

«I witnessed two studs walking down my driveway and one went into his truck,» Simoni said.

In the movie captured by Simoni, one of the fellows looks to be wearing a hat and the other looks to be wearing a bondage mask. The movie shows the boys going through the car with flashlights.

The suspects cautiously shut the car door and left. A minute later, they returned. One got into the car and as the headlights went on, the other acted as a lookout.

Simoni filed a police report because she wants not only her car back, but her daughter`s things.

«It was on her bday. She had bday money, bday cards, bday presents. Who does that? Who, with no regard, takes someone’s car like it’s nothing?» Simoni said.

Ross police told Channel eleven they have had a number of call for car break-ins, but no other calls about stolen cars.
