Last Wednesday, CWBChicago reported exclusively that cops are on the lookout for a Chrysler 300 that has been used in a series of bump ’n’ run auto thefts across the North Side.
The suspect vehicle is a silver or gray Chrysler 300 with tinted windows, we reported. Its license plate begins with X92.
Two days later, NBC5 aired video of a bump ’n’ run that appears to show the 300 in action.
The television report briefly mentions that the car is wanted in a series of similar incidents, but the report focuses on the victim—licensed to carry a concealed firearm—who shot at a suspect.
Moments after the thieves have lightly tapped the back end of the targeted car with the Chrysler 300, the victim, wearing a yellow top, gets out of her SUV to look for damage.
At the same time, one of the would-be thieves jumps behind the wheel of her truck and speeds away with the Chrysler 300 leading the escape. A third thief appears to have been left behind by his two so-call friends.
