(OOLITIC) - Police believe they know who took a woman's car while she was loading it with purchases outside the Family Dollar Store in Oolitic.

Police were called to the store on just before 3 p.m. Monday after a woman reported an unknown man had stolen her 2005 black Chevrolet sedan.

The owner of the vehicle told police she had been in the store to purchase items and was loading those items into the back of her sedan when all of a sudden the vehicle was in gear and she looked up and saw a man sitting in the driver's seat.

"The man told the woman to move out of the way or he would run over her," says Sheriff Sam Craig. "The woman moved and the man drove off with the vehicle."

Inside the vehicle were the items the woman purchased, her cell phone and purse.

Chief Deputy Mike Branham says the vehicle was recovered Wednesday a few blocks from the store in an alley. The woman's phone, purse, wallet, groceries and keys were still in the vehicle.
