Woman Steals Reporter's Car On Camera

Car stolen while investigating property fraud

WATCH: Fla. Woman Steals News Reporter's Car

A reporter in Florida investigating a rental property scam lost some property of his own when a woman took off with his news vehicle.

Veteran reporter Josh Taylor was investigating chiropractor Dr. Craig Siegal for ABC 7. Siegal has reportedly been accused of renting a 5-bedroom home rife with code violations as an 11-bedroom home to a 91-year-old woman. When she demanded her money back Siegal refused.

Taylor got as far as setting up his tripod and turning on his camera when Jean Price, a friend of Siegal's, confronted him in the street. She shoved the tripod into the news car, hopped in herself and took off.

The car was found a few blocks away. There are no charges pending at this time.
