Thief Steals Audi From Dealership With Passenger Sleeping Inside

Offbeat


Dealership thefts are nothing new, but one in Ohio is raising eyebrows as it occurred in broad daylight and the stolen vehicle had a 19-year-old passenger sleeping inside.

According to the Findlay Police Department, the incident occurred around 1:00 PM last Saturday as Kharisma Guajardo and Raylon Scott brought their 2012 Audi A4 to Taylor Hyundai to trade it in.

As Scott was sleeping in the car, 32-year-old Justin Vaughn climbed into the driver’s seat and drove away. The theft was quickly discovered and Guajardo was able to track the vehicle and give police real-time updates. As this was going on, Scott woke up and started texting Guajardo with the car’s location as well as details about Vaughn’s “threatening behaviors.”

Local police departments were notified about the incident and Tiffin Police Chief David Pauly revealed his officers spotted the vehicle at 1:26 PM. They attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but Vaughn “failed to comply.” A pursuit began and was eventually ended when Tiffin officers performed a “slow speed vehicle termination maneuver.”

Vaughn was taken into custody and has been charged with an assortment of offenses including aggravated robbery, kidnapping, and motor vehicle theft. Pauly also said Vaughn was charged with fleeing and eluding police, although the Findlay Police Department made no mention of it.

Thankfully, Scott only received minor injuries in the ordeal, which were treated at the scene “without further medical treatment necessary.” That’s good news, but a Seneca County Sheriff’s deputy injured his hand during the incident.
