A car was stolen from outside a home on Steel Circle April 1 while the owner was inside playing video games, according to a Fort Mill Police Department report.
The owner, a Rock Hill man, said he left the car unlocked with the key in the ignition. Prior to the complaint about the stolen car, a Steele Street resident called police to report that someone was driving recklessly in the neighborhood. A police officer did spot someone driving recklessly but lost sight of the car before the driver could be stopped, the report states.
Police suspect the car that was observed may have been the one later reported stolen.
