“They continued to ask us the color of the vehicle, what time did you check in, did you leave back out, that was starting to alarm us that something was going on,” Leslie Tucker said.
Dia Tucker said hotel management finally realized the car had been stolen. It was a blue Dodge Charger Scat Pack. Tucker says hotel surveillance video shows two men were able to get into the garage through a broken gate.
“It was all in the matter of six to seven minutes, I saw a car go inside, and I guess go up to the top, come back down and wrap around and pulled right next to my car,” Tucker told Channel 2 Action News.
But the Tuckers said the hotel won’t release that surveillance video.
“He told me he could not release the footage to me directly, that my insurance provider would need to reach out to his insurance provider,” Leslie said.
Channel 2 Action News sent multiple emails to the hotel.
The hotel responded to requests for comment Friday.
“At Thompson Atlanta – Buckhead, the safety and security of our guests and colleagues is a top priority. We continue to work closely with the hotel’s third-party valet parking operator and garage owner on enhanced security measures. Any additional inquiries should be directed to local authorities,” Donte Johnson, Area General Manager, Thompson Atlanta – Buckhead, said in a statement.
The Tuckers told Channel 2 Action News that Atlanta Police said they’ve gotten reports that their car is being used by the thieves to commit crimes.
If anyone has seen a blue Dodge Charger with Georgia plate CPJ 4321 they’re asked to contact Atlanta Police. Tucker said his company’s logo is in the back window of the car.
