ALBANY, GA (WALB) – If someone were to steal your car, you wouldn't expect him to come visit you, but that's just what happened to one Albany woman. Her car was stolen in the early hours Monday morning.
Later that day, she came face to face with the thief, who then hopped back in her car and drove away again.
Amber Price parked her car at the Westwind Apartments on Dawson Road around Midnight Monday. Then, she went to bed.
"So that next morning, I got up to take my little boy to school. He had to be at school at 8, it wasn't there," Price said.
Sometime between 1 AM and 5 AM, her car was stolen. She called police and reported it, then Amber found a ride to work at Dollar Tree. A couple of hours later, a customer walked in wanting a money order, which they don't provide.
"He looked suspicious, so what I did was I followed him back outside with my eyes and he went to my car. He got in my car."
But she drives a very popular car, a gold Honda. How could she be sure the car was hers?
"I have some vents on the side of my car. I have skeleton hub around my frame in the back. My little baby Tigger thing to protect her from the sun was still in the car. He didn't take anything off, he was just riding smooth."
Riding smooth in her ride. "It's not right at all. I mean, I work hard for my money to get what I want and a thief come and take my stuff. It's not right."
The Lee County Sheriff's Office responded, and even got into a chase with the stolen car. The driver went through several red lights and into a school zone. That's when deputies called the chase off, so no one would get hurt.
