SALEM — The Salem Police Department is investigating a motor vehicle theft that occurred on Nov. 4, 2013.
The vehicle, a white 2009 Honda Pilot with New Hampshire registration, was stolen around 7 a.m. from the Workout Club in Salem.
After entering the gym, the victim left the car keys in a basket at the front desk. Shortly thereafter, a heavyset man, approximately 230 pounds and between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 5 inches tall was observed (via security camera) removing the victim’s keys from the basket. The suspect is thought to be between 30 and 35 years old.
A witness observed the suspect pressing the key fob in the parking lot to locate the vehicle. The vehicle has since been recovered in Lowell by the Lowell Police Department.
