A Van Nest man says he was driving home from the gym Saturday, when he encountered thieves in his other car.
Rafael Pujols says he saw the two people inside his car on the corner of Archer Street and Taylor Avenue.
"I start to scream at them like, 'Yo! That's my car! That's my car! That's my car!"' he says. "They just start running away. I tried to chasing them, but I was like it's not even worth it. I just let them go."
The pair abandoned the vehicle once Pujols screamed at them.
Pujols says his car was stolen on Thursday after midnight. He says he forgot to lock his truck on Fillmore Street, and thieves stole a bag which contained the keys to his other car.
He says the suspects even got a parking ticket less than a mile away while the car was in their possession.
Pujols says police told him that their fingerprints are all over the car, including their blood from a Band-Aid found inside.
