It was a Christmas reunion for a Juneau man and his car.
The red Toyota 4-door was stolen December 17th while parked, with the engine running, in the Nugget Mall parking lot.
Juneau police searched for the car, but were unable to find it, even making it last week’s “Crime of the Week.”
On Christmas Eve, a woman called JPD to say she’d seen the stolen vehicle in the parking lot of a church in the Mendenhall Valley, covered with snow. Officers contacted the owner, who was reunited with his car.
According to a JPD news release, the vehicle did not sustain any new damage while it was missing. However, a few wrapped Christmas presents were gone.
JPD continues to investigate.
