Police say the car was spotted parked in the same parking lot twice in less than a week.
“The car was in the process of being stolen and the stolen vehicle is in the vehicle,” Anchorage Police Officer Eric Loehle told The Alaska Dispatch News on Friday.
“We’re not looking for anyone else at this time.”
Alaskans Cod has been in the news recently for a number of car thefts and this particular car was the third vehicle that has been stolen from the facility in less that two weeks.
“It’s a very rare occurrence for someone to be stolen so it’s not that uncommon for a car to be in there that’s gone missing,” Loehl said.
“We do have to ask people to exercise caution in the area around this parking lot and it’s important that they do that.”
Police are now considering whether the vehicle is a car thief, a vehicle stolen or a stolen vehicle, as it was parked in a parking lot, Loehr said.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Anchorage Police Department.
