Jessica Lewis told police her car was stolen while parked in her driveway. She acknowledged that she left her car unlocked, explaining, “My mind has been foggy as I am grieving the loss of my mom and I left my key fob and purse inside the car when I got home last night. They (the perpetrators) attempted to use my corporate card and debit cards at Speedway around 4 a.m.”

Lewis also said inside her car were special personal items from the funeral.

Anyone who has any knowledge is urged to call Silent Observer or the Wayland Police Department at 792-9366.
