Car stolen straight off transport trailer

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Hillsborough County deputies are looking for a 2014 silver Hyundai Sonata that was stolen off a truck Monday morning at Carmax on Nebraska Ave.

The truck driver, Charles Smith of Dothan, Ala. was sleeping inside the cab of his rig waiting on business hours when he felt his truck shake, according to investigators.

When Smith got out of his truck, the car was gone.

It was on the bottom rack of the two tier 18-wheeler bed, was the last car in the row, and the sheriff's office said the keys were left inside.

Smith gave investigators a vague description of the suspect describing him as wearing a light-colored hoodie.

There may be front end damage to the car since it was backed off the trailer that wasn't completely lowered to the ground.
