ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Police say the lack of driving skills of a thief helped get her caught.
An owner walked outside her apartment near Pennsylvania and Central to see her car being stolen early Wednesday morning.
That’s when they say Mariha Leva attempted to drive away but put the car in drive instead of reverse and ran into the complex.
The delay allowed the victim’s husband to grab Leva and hold her until police arrived.
Police say the car was almost stolen because it was warming up and want to remind people that is not a good idea.
