There appear to be no hard feelings between a suspected car thief who totaled a stolen Lexus during a daring high-speed pursuit Monday along the South Freeway and the car’s owner, the man told Chron.com.
Amil Mikahiel said he was buying a new washer at Home Depot along the Gulf Freeway near South Loop 610 when the suspect allegedly stole his early model Lexus SUV around 3 p.m. Mikahiel only noticed when he went outside and saw his vehicle was gone.
Panicked, he called 911 to report the theft. He had installed a GPS tracking system on the car and was relaying the car’s location to police, who spotted it near Wheeler and Calhoun near the University of Houston around 3:20 p.m., police said.
