During the month of April 2009, an automotive shop on Main Street in Riverside closed down.  Unfortunately the owner took several customer vehicles with him to parts unknown.  I was able to get one car returned which someone dropped off at the car stereo shop at 5 points (La Sierra and Hole).  The shop owner made statements to the victim he was opening a new business somewhere near Tyler Street.  It’s possible the car may be at one of the small lots around 5 points.
