Police: Cross dressing car thief strikes again

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Police are looking for a cross dress after they say he stole cars from three counties.

Lemar Robinson is wanted in Bulloch County after investigators say he test drove a 2006 Jeep Commander Thursday night...but never came back to the dealership.

And they say the car he left behind at the dealership was stolen from Yes Guaranteed Auto Financing in Savannah.

"It's not your common occurrence. We probably have very few cross dressers come on the lot...and then to have a cross dresser steal a car on top of it," Billy Hill said.

Hill says Robinson showed up at his Savannah lot looking for a new SUV.

"He had the typical story. He had a car to trade in. He test drove three different cars and came back with a critique of each," Hill said.

Hill says Robinson decided to test drive a Mitsubishi SUV...but he never came back.

"Most of our test drives are ten or fifteen minutes. But once it got into a two hour time frame...we started thinking something was up," Hill said.

Police say the car Robinson drove to the lot was stolen from a dealership in Effingham County. And they say Thursday night he left the SUV from Hill's dealership behind and stole another car from a Statesboro dealership.

"His parents have stayed in touch with us and they keep telling us in the past he has always stayed local and taken care of the car. They said he'll eventually shoplift or he'll do something to get caught," Hill said.

Hill even left a message on Robinson's cell phone telling him if he returned the car he wouldn't press charges. But now...police say he has struck again...and they say there is no telling what might happen next.

"Eventually he is going to cross the path of the wrong person. They are going to realize what he is doing and they are going to take matters into their own hands," Hill said.

If you have any information, contact the Statesboro Police Department at 912-764-9911.
