MASON CITY – A Mason City woman is warning people to lock their car doors after the ordeal she went through with her vehicle.
On the morning of August 27th, Kayla Skiye says that her car was stolen from her driveway on 14th Street NW between the hours of 4 AM and 6 AM. Mason City police responded to her call that morning at 7 AM and took a report.
“These thieves are out running around stealing things out of peoples cars and stealing cars in general,” Kayla warned.
“I got my car back after it was found in a ditch on 310th Street east bound, 2 miles out of Mason City on Highway 65,” Kayla explained. “They took my golf club out of the trunk smashed all my windows out, broke my front axle and did a lot of damage to the body. I want everyone aware of these criminals.”
The tough part for Kayla is that she had the car parked in her driveway and the keys were in the car, which the thieves found. She had also parked the car and was not using at at the time, as her insurance had temporarily expired.
