Posted: Tuesday, February 26, 2013 -- 2:25 p.m.
Incident Date: 02/24/2013 - 12:05 AM
Address: 2300 block S. Stoughton Rd.
Suspect: Male, Hispanic, 30's, wearing an orange baseball cap.
Victim: Male, age 38, Madison
Details: A Madison man, driving around downtown early Sunday morning, took notice of what he thought to be a very nice looking car. It was a BMW X5, and it looked very similar to one he owns; even had the same tree style air freshener hanging from the rearview mirror. He pulled up alongside, and could see two men in the front seat, and two women in the back. They were jamming to some loud music, and he could feel the thumping base. It was a nice ride. The 38-year old next noticed the license plate, and that was when he started putting 2-and-2 together. His car, his BMW X5, was in the shop, or so he thought. He drove to the Stoughton Rd. auto repair business, where he had dropped his car the prior Monday, and discovered it was now gone. Staff later said it was still there at the close of business on Saturday, and must have been stolen hours before the owner spotted it cruising around in the heart of the Isthmus.
