Jeep taken from dealer lot

February 18, 1994

A Jeep Cherokee worth nearly $21,000 was whisked off the parking lot of Ritchie Jeep Eagle on Ritchie Highway about 6 p.m. Wednesday, county police said yesterday.

A witness told police that the driver of the Jeep cut her off as he left the lot at high speed. About the same time, a burgundy Toyota pickup truck followed the Jeep.

Officer Terry Crowe, a police spokesman, speculated that the two suspects might have used the Toyota to drive to the dealership and that it then served as a getaway car for one of them.

The witness told police she followed the Jeep but lost it when it turned onto the Baltimore Beltway. The Toyota headed up Potee Street and into Baltimore, police said.
