According to Antioch Police Public Information Liaison Sgt. Price Kendall on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, from July 6 through 22, there were 42 reported stolen vehicles from all parts of the city. Most of the vehicles that were stolen were Hyundai’s and Kia’s.

However, one of the vehicles reported stolen is a Buick LaCrosse owned by Antioch resident Jennifer Grey. According to an NBC Bay Area TV news report on Monday the theft occurred during her visit to a veterinarian.

In a post on her Facebook page on Monday, Grey shared photos of her car and wrote, “STOLEN!-SHARE-STOLEN! 2017 Buick LaCrosse PREMIUM all-wheel drive, only 27,000 miles on it, stolen from the parking lot at East Hills Veterinary Hospital in Antioch ca.on Buchanan on 7/21/23 at around 4:40 p.m. Blue ice metallic, blacked out windows and a small skull with blue reflective eyes on the rear window. It’s got deep butterscotch leather interior, 27,000 Mi on it, and little black reflective protectors on the inside where you open the door so you don’t scratch the door handle nook area . License plate TRUCKUR although plate is probably gone now. You will not see another car like this one around the Bay Area. The police and I happen to believe that this car will not be dismantled it will be sold so the likelihood of it traveling the Bay Area freeways is fairly great. If you see this car please call 911 Antioch ca. police immediately and give the above time and date information and then let me know. Thank you for your time and attention I really appreciate it.”
