CRIME BEAT: Woman takes break; loses car, friend: "A Pueblo woman left her friend in her car while she took a bathroom break at an East Side convenience store early Tuesday morning and when she returned, the car and the friend were gone.
Tracey Roe said she had parked her 1993 Mitsubishi Expo at the gasoline pumps at the 7-Eleven, 804 E. Fourth St., at about 4 a.m. Tuesday and went inside to use the restroom, according to a report by Cpl. Gil Ladrini.
Roe said when she returned outside, the car was missing. She estimated her loss at $4,500."
One wonders - is the friend missing, too? Is this a hijacking with a kidnapping? Is anyone looking for the friend? If the friend took the car, did they just borrow it for a few hours? Maybe they left to grab some chirizo and egg breakfast burritos with green chili (because at 4 A.M., that stuff is delicious) and would be right back. If your friend steals your car, you need to end that friendship with a sternly worded Tweet. Does the estimated loss include a monetary value of loss of friendship?
Who ended up with the second burrito? These Chieftain reporters should really ask a few more questions.
