Two cars stolen from couple's driveway in Florence

FLORENCE, Ky. - Brian and Amy Davis said two cars were stolen from the driveway of their Florence, Ky. home early Friday morning.

"You know, we work pretty hard for our money and you know we paid our cars off, and here we are with nothing to drive to work or anything," Brian Davis said.

They have nothing to drive but a jeep loaned to them by a family member.

"I freaked out, woke her up and we didn't know what to do," he said.

Brian said he noticed the cars, a 2002 pearl white Ford Explorer Limited and 2005 beige Nissan Maxima SL, missing from the driveway of their home on Donner Drive around 6:45 a.m., when he walked outside before work. 

"The explorer was locked, with a key code on the side," he said. "We leave the keys in the car and use a key code. The Maxima I know the keys were in the car."

A neighbor said he saw the Davis' cars in their driveway when he left for work Friday at 5 a.m. He believes the cars were stolen sometime between 5 a.m. and 6:45 a.m.

"The sheriff said right before he came to our house that morning, there was four break-ins on Mt. Zion that morning and one was stolen firearms," Amy Davis said.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office said it took two theft reports that Friday.  It took a report of a stolen pistol taken from a car a couple miles away in Union.  The sheriff's office also took a theft report of the Davis' stolen cars that day.

The Davis' said two of their neighbors also had their cars broken into.

"Just please be more cautious," Brian and Amy Davis said. "Don't leave your keys in your car like we did."

The Davis' said their insurance won't cover theft since they only have liability coverage and not comprehensive coverage.

The Davis' Ford Explorer has license plate number 6-6-0-A-B-E. Their Nissan Maxima has license plate number 7-3-8-L-D-L.

The Boone County Sheriff's Office advises everyone to lock their cars.

If you see anything suspicious going on in your neighborhood, you're being asked to contact them.
