Incident Report for Case #2018-201383

Incident Date

800 N. Thompson Dr.


Male, age 22, Madison


The victim told a responding officer he is a very trusting person and also new to the delivery business.
That was not a good combination Friday night. The victim left his black 2003 Honda Civic unlocked and running for a couple of minutes while delivering a pizza in the 800 block of N. Thompson Dr. That was enough time for a thief to get in and drive away.
The officer explained criminals are often opportunistic and quick and that you really can't leave keys in unlocked vehicles for any amount of time.
