Fake ER valet nabs expecting mom's car
LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - January 17, 2011 -- Police say a fake valet at a Massachusetts emergency room offered to park a pregnant woman's car, then drove away with it.
Lowell police Capt. Kelly Richardson tells the Boston Herald that the woman drove herself to Lowell General Hospital at 3 a.m. Friday while suffering labor pains. She parked outside the emergency room doors and was met by a man wearing a uniform-style shirt who introduced himself as the valet.
The man said she couldn't park there but volunteered to take her keys and move the car. Then, police say, he drove away.
While being admitted, the woman was told the hospital didn't offer a valet service.
The car was found Saturday morning. Police are examining it for fingerprints and other evidence to try to find the suspect.
