There’s no actual stealing going on, but it might feel like you’re the victim of theft when, “I came out. My car was gone,” said Pierce. “12:30 a.m. in the morning, my car was gone,” said Wilgar. Peppermill patrons Toni Jo Wilgar and Michael Pierce told Contact 13 similar stories for a report that first aired in December. In addition to their cars, our camera caught half a dozen others being towed in just over one hour on a Friday night.
