The owners of a 1993 Honda Accord SE that was stolen Halloween night from the Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center parking garage are offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the recovery of their car and conviction of the thief who stole it.

Registered nurse Jane Grenz, 62, was minutes away from the end of her shift when the car was stolen at 6:22 p.m., her husband, Rick Grenz, 62, told The Columbian on Friday.

“To have it stolen there at Legacy where my wife is working, it was a shock,” the Ridgefield man said. “It’s unfortunate there are people out there that take advantage of other people.”

He said he doesn’t know how the thief accessed the vehicle, but there was no sign of broken glass.

Grenz said the couple reported the theft to hospital security and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, which posted the case on its Facebook page.

Grenz said the four-door Honda is champagne-colored and has a sunroof. The Washington license plate number is ACV8354 and has 2018 tabs.

“It’s a car that has good durability, it’s practical. It’s a car I don’t worry about. I maintain it, and it just keeps going,” Grenz said.

Hospital security cameras captured an image of the suspect. The sheriff’s office is asking that if anyone can identify him to contact Deputy Jon Shields at 360-921-3591 or jon.shields@clark.wa.gov. Reference case No. 17010324.

Grenz said he’s grateful for the response from the hospital’s security team and sheriff’s office, and he hopes the car turns up soon.
