Jasper businessman says suspect brought children along during car theft

A Jasper businessman is speaking out after surveillance video from his auto business captured a suspect stealing with two children tagging along. The suspect's picture and vehicle are posted to the right of this story.

The theft occurred around 7:30 pm Wednesday at Jeff's Auto Sales on Highway 78 W. in Jasper.

"It's bad that anybody steals, but to see that little girl, that's what got me," said Davis.

Davis said the suspect stole a racing tachometer, valued at a few hundred dollars.

"I couldn't care less about what he took out of the car," added Davis. "But the little girls don't deserve to be in this type of situation."

Jasper police are investigating the incident, but no one is in custody.
