ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It's one of the biggest crime problems police deal with in Albany, stolen cars, and as it turns out, thieves are willing to work to get away with one.

Back in June, Mark King left his 1991 Honda Civic parked outside of a warehouse on West Town Road, where he works.

His car was pretty much inoperable, but when he came back to fix it and take it home on a Sunday afternoon... it had already been stolen. 

He said, "The battery was dead, no gas and a flat tire." So someone had to do some work? "Yeah. They had to fix it up to take it off somewhere."

King's 1991 Honda Civic is Maroon and has a distinguishing bumper sticker that says, "Don't mess with Texas." If you see it, call Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.
