Valley car thief caught on photo radar camera

GILBERT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Gilbert police are looking for a car thief who just made their job a lot easier.

The car thief had his picture taken by a photo radar camera while driving the car he had just stolen.

The car was stolen out of the garage of an East Valley family a couple weeks ago. Police recovered the vehicle a few days later, but the family was convinced that the car thief would never be caught.

But that changed when the family received a photo radar citation in the mail, with a picture of the car thief driving their stolen car.

The family immediately called police, who are now asking for the public's help to catch the car thief.

If you know who the man is, you are asked to call the Gilbert Police Department at 480- 503-6500.
