Car stolen as UberEats driver makes delivery

The UberEats driver had just dropped off the food for a customer when they saw their car being driven away by a thief.

Police are looking for a stolen maroon 2011 Ford Fusion. The vehicle theft occurred in the 100 block of S. Pete Ellis at the Woodwind Terrace Apartments Saturday night at approximately 11:15 p.m.

The owner of the car was delivering food for UberEats and left the car running, and the door unlocked while delivering an order. After dropping off the food, the driver turned to see the car being driven away and said they didn’t get a look at the thief.

The theft occurred less than 24 hours ago, and police had not recovered the vehicle by noon Sunday.

UberEats is an online food ordering and delivery platform, with 2.51 billion in revenue according to its website. However, drivers have to provide their own vehicles and make an average of 3.50 dollars per delivery.

UberEats drivers also provide their own gas, vehicle maintenance, car insurance, etc., but hope to make a profit from their deliveries.
