Victim Fights Back with Video Proof
GROVE CITY (Ben Garbarek) -- A theft victim is taking matters into his own hands trying to figure out who broke into his car.
Brett Holley saw a yellow pick-up truck outside of his house around 5:30 Thursday morning that stuck out to him.
"That's awfully strange," Holley said. "What are they doing kind of blocking my driveway?"
What he couldn't see from his window was that the driver of that truck was breaking into his car. Holley got dressed and went outside, but by that point the car thief had driven off.
"When I opened my car door, I just smelled smoke," he said. "I'm not a smoker so first thing it just hit me, the stink. I knew someone was in those vehicles."
And he had proof. Holley has security cameras installed on the outside of his home. He went back inside and looked at the video. Sure enough, the video showed someone had been inside his truck. Later he realized his laptop was gone.
"When I seen him taken the laptop I was like, 'aw man'," Holley said. "That laptop had all my business information."
Now Holley is posting the video all over Facebook and YouTube in the hopes someone might know the guy in that yellow pick-up truck.
If you know who it is, call Columbus Police.
