Quick thinking residents in Cleveland's Slavic Village Neighborhood managed to take pictures of two suspected car thieves as they were dumping a vehicle on their street.

Thomas Conger took the pictures with his smartphone as the suspects were abandoning the 2000 Dodge Intrepid on Pallister Drive, and dumping the victim's purse.

Police report the vehicle was taken from the Steelyard Commons parking lot, in front of the Marshalls store at the shopping complex.

Conger said he's not surprised the suspects picked his neighborhood, because the area is somewhat remote and too many crimes take place on his street.

If anyone has any information on this crime, please contact Detective Janet Murphy at email or PH 216-623-5218.
