Monday mornings the last thing anyone wants to worry about is how to get to work. But this morning a thief put Shannon Long's work day up on blocks.
"I was coming out for work this morning and I came out and my car looked all cockeyed so I walked over and I noticed that all four tires were taken. It was all jacked up," she said.
Her 2015 Toyota Camry was on a jack and a stack of plastic trays, in the lot outside her home at Pebblebrook Apartments. The car had lost its wheels but she didn't lose her cool.
"It's not the property manager's fault or anything like that. They have people, they have cameras and lights and everything, so it's a well lit area so it's not anybody's fault," she said.
It is the only vehicle the Pebblebrook property manager knows of to suffer this kind of theft.
"Unfortunate incidents happen everywhere no matter where you are so it could happen here," said Stephen Mullins. "It could happen anyplace else. I just encourage people to be vigilant and be aware of their surroundings and park in a place where it's well lit."
Shannon Lord does have insurance. New Britain police are investigating. She may not be pointing fingers but she's wondering why her car.
"It definitely surprises me but I guess nothing surprises me in this world anymore," she said.
