    After a few moments of rambling around inside, the suspect drives off.

    While backing out of the victim's driveway, the suspect hit a neighbor's parked car.

    Casey Kelley owns the stolen SUV.  Kelley said, "He looked so young and that's what's so hurtful because it's just a kid."  



    "With kids, they need guidance and that guidance is knowing where your child is at five in the morning," ​​​​​​Kelley added, "Why is your child out of the house and breaking into cars and stealing cars at 5 o'clock?"

    Kelley believes the suspect found a valet key fob inside the SUV to start it up. 

    Another neighbor's surveillance camera also spotted a small sedan in the neighborhood around the same time the SUV was stolen.
