Indianapolis—Indianapolis police released surveillance video images of a stolen race car, Wednesday, in an effort to track it down.
The images reveal two people pushing the car from a truck into a storage locker at Storage Express on Southport Rd on the city's south side.
Detectives told Fox 59, it belongs to the Sports Club of America out of Kansas. The owner had parked it outside a south side hotel on June 20th when someone snatched it up.
John Barlow, a manager at Storage Express, couldn't believe what he saw when scrolling through the surveillance video.
"We saw a race car being brought onto the property, being stored inside a storage space for one day," said Barlow. "And then it was being rolled out, actually driven off of the property."
He said the quick turnaround made him suspicious so he got on the internet and searched for an stolen race car from Indianapolis. Within seconds, he came across a blog posting about the exact same car. He immediately contacted police.
Storage Express also handed over names and drivers license information of everyone who stored items at their south side facility on that day.
"It all just kinda came together and we were like 'Yes!' We're going to catch somebody," said Barlow.
IMPD detectives believe the car is still in the Indianapolis area. It is a black and white Mazda "Indy Style" race car with the number 27 on it.
Police are also looking for three other vehicles also stolen from the same owner on the same night: A white and red Ford F350 pickup with a North Carolina license plate ABB1661, a 24 foot white Pace Arrow trailer, a red Honda Recon ATV.
