Always – ALWAYS take your keys.

On Sept. 16, Zachary David McGlothen, 22, of Pacific Grove and Charles Gaskins, 44, of Seaside were arrested on suspicion of hotwiring and stealing Ryan and Tracy Travaille’s 2011 Toyota Sienna outside their Eardley Avenue home just as they finished unloading groceries and were about to put their kids in the vehicle. Two laptop computers, a gym bag and other items were also stolen from the couple’s other car.
The Toyota had been missing for eight days until about 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 when a citizen contacted the Seaside Police Department.
“Officers were dispatched to a report of a suspicious vehicle” on Mingo Avenue, Seaside Police Deputy Chief Judy Veloz told The Pine Cone. “The officers contacted the guys inside the vehicle and took them into custody.”
