Garrett Reed from Georgia told WSCO his 1984 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS was taken from the car parking zone of the Courtyard by Marriott close to the College of North Carolina, although he had eliminated the steering wheel. He appeared out the window within the morning to see it wasn’t there.
“I knew the 2 vehicles I parked between and it wasn’t there,” Reed instructed the information outlet. “I legit thought it was a joke at first after which I ran downstairs. That’s once I bumped into the gentleman that had parked to the left of me and his automobile had simply gotten stolen too.”
