BELMONT — A vehicle reported stolen from the parking lot at Planet Fitness on April 19 has been recovered by police in Cincinnati.
Lt. Rich Mann said two people are in police custody in Ohio as part of the investigation that led them to the stolen 2013 Ford Explorer.
A female patron of Planet Fitness reported that her keys had been stolen from her pocketbook from her unlocked locker sometime between 9:40 a.m. and 11:20 a.m. on April 19. When the women went to the parking lot, she also noticed her SUV was gone. A second female patron also reported her keys were stolen. However, her car was not taken.
The victim had left her cell phone in her car and Belmont Police were able to "ping" it to Billerica, Mass.
Mann said the recovered car is in good condition and the victim is working with her insurance company to return the car to New Hampshire.
He said Belmont Police are working with Cincinnati Police and the case remains under investigation.
Mann said that at this time, there is no known connection between the car theft and the Felony Lane Gang — so called for their use of stolen and forged checks by cashing them in the outermost lane of banks drive-up windows — but they aren't ruling anything out.
