Truck stolen from driveway, family fears car is in Mexico

Stolen car's license plate

A Brownsville family turned to Action 4 News in hopes of recovering a vehicle stolen from outside their home.

It's been nearly a week since it happened and they fear they may be running out of time. Susana Cervantes said this is the first time anything is stolen from her home.

She was shocked when the S.U.V. disappeared right from her driveway with such ease.

She fears the truck could be in Mexico.

The 2005 blue Dodge Durango was stolen back on April 17 from their home on Mandarine Lane near the Brownsville airport.

Cervantes said it has the name "Dan" carved on the driver's side door, a martial arts sticker on the back window, and the front right fog light is broken.

Police did track down surveillance video at a Stripes Convenience Store on FM 802 and 511 where the suspect may have gased-up. "When we first met on Wednesday they kind of assumed that it's already in Mexico but I TMm hoping it's still here, Cervantes said. I got to see the video of the person but it's someone I don't recognize so I'm hoping someone will recognize that gentleman."

Cervantes and her husband have had to adjust their schedules to get their four children to school and activities on time.

She said right now they cannot afford to buy another vehicle.

Police have placed lookouts at all the international bridges in case this suspect tries to cross into Mexico. If he didn't do so right after taking the vehicle...
