Allison Priebe was pumping gas at the Liberty gas station at 700 S. Patrick Street in Old Town on Sunday afternoon when somebody drove off in her car.
“The man jumped in my car while I was pumping gas,” she wrote on Facebook after the incident. “I am covered in gasoline, extremely shaken up and have been robbed of my purse, phone, computer, coats, jewelry and all the money I had made this weekend from the Warehouse Sale.”
The car is a white 2017 Lexus GX and the Virginia tags read UNX-9325.
Alexandria Police said that the incident occurred just after 1 p.m. Sunday and is under investigation. The department is encouraging drivers to lock their vehicle doors and avoid leaving their vehicles unattended when possible.
Priebe later wrote that attempts to use her credit card were made in District Heights, Maryland, and that the Alexandria Police Department failed her.
“(T)hey literally told me there was nothing they could do and MAYBE I would hear from a detective this week,” Priebe wrote.
