Mercedes left for valet is stolen

William Ferchland

Thinking that leaving his 1983 Mercedes in front of Caesars Tahoe valet attendant’s office would be sufficient to get his car parked, a 59-year-old Stockton man was surprised to find the vehicle stolen, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy said.

The man parked his car Saturday at 2:30 a.m. in front of the office. Video surveillance recorded a white male in his early 20s entering the car at 5:57 a.m. and driving off eastbound on Highway 50.

The man who took the vehicle was described as having brown hair and medium build and wearing a black and white shirt.
