The security camera video shows a woman with a backpack calmly walking across the lot Saturday at Alex Mehmood's West Sacramento car dealership. She opens the door to a 2003 burgundy full-size Ford F-150, gets behind the wheel and drives off.
Mehmood noticed the empty parking space later, when he came into the lot on a cigarette break. Even though he knew the keys had been left in the truck by a customer who had taken it on a test drive earlier, he was still surprised.
Keys had been left in vehicles on his lot in the past; this was the first time one had been stolen.
Now Mehmood is seeking information about the thief, who is described as a heavyset woman in her 30s wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and light grey pants. The truck she stole is worth $10,000; it has a green license plate with the name of Mehmood's dealership: Sac Auto Sales, which is located at 1011 Drever St.
Mehmood said he has contacted the police about the theft.
