Prague Police are asking the public’s help in investigating a recent car theft in Vinohrady

A long-term expatriate resident of Prague parked his 2003 Toyota Rav4 on Na Zájezdu while going into his house on Feb. 10. When he returned at about 2:45 p.m., he discovered the car was missing. Vinohrady is one of the most expensive areas of Prague to live in, and due to this fact, has a higher than normal number of car thefts, according to Czech Police crime statistics.

The car also has one Bridgestone tire on the front right passenger side, with the remaining three tires being Michelin brand. The vehicle is more recognisable from the rear, the vehicle has a trailer hitch, and a spare wheel mounted on the rear of the car with a Calvin & Hobbs decal sticker in the centre of it.
