Carter-Frisbie Neighborhood – Abandoned Car

Abandoned Car Found on Carter Street—One of Many Dumped in Vallejo

Recently, residents of the Carter-Frisbie discovered an abandoned and gutted car in their neighborhood.

The car was first discovered about 10:30 AM. It was a red Honda with no console, no seats, no engine, a flat tire, and something dragging from the undercarriage.

The neighborhood watch team called the City (abandoned car phone number: 707-648-4682). Police arrived around 2:00 PM, about the same time the neighbor in front of whose house the car was left arrived home. He told police he may have heard something around 2:30 AM, so that is likely when our chop-shop crew dumped the vehicle.

The police officers mentioned that they are increasingly finding stripped cars dumped here in Vallejo. In this case, the car’s Daly City owner reported it stolen on May 10—two weeks before it was found here.

The tow truck arrived around 2:20 PM. The driver told the neighbors that his company is towing about 10 cars a day in Vallejo in similar condition, though most are taken for joy rides and then just dumped when it’s convenient (or the car runs out of gas). This red Honda was cannibalized by pros.

One of the neighbors added: “Especially refreshing was the professionalism and demeanor of the police. Officer Randy  Kenney is a super ambassador for our City, a great guy with a tough job under stressful conditions. I think we’re fortunate to have folks like Officer Kenney helping us neighborhood watch folks out.”
