(WICHITA, Kan.) — From a distance, a silver Corvette looks like one of best cars on the K-15 Auto Lot in Derby.
"Well, it's got about a thousand scratches on it where it went through the fence,” Tom Scripp said.
Scripp just got it back a month after a thief took it.
"To re-paint a Corvette, maybe six or seven thousand dollars,” Scripp said.
Wichita officers say they tracked the suspected thief and the Corvette to this southwest Wichita neighborhood. Around noon Monday, they tried to pull the guy over.
Officers chased the driver to a neighborhood in Haysville. That's when he pulled into Michael Legg's driveway.
"He picked the wrong drive way to ditch a stolen car in,” Linda Legg said.
Linda is Michael's mother. She was visiting her son when the suspected car thief pulled-up.
"He'd seen the guy get out of the car and run along the fence line, heading toward his back yard,” Linda said.
