Thief thought car, pants were abandoned

After leaving his parked car unlocked in The City, an Oakland man said he returned to find a man sitting inside the vehicle Sunday — and wearing his boxer shorts and pants, police said.

The victim “demanded only his pants to be returned” after spotting the suspected thief inside his car at Beidman and Ellis streets around 7:30 p.m., police said.

A 30-year-old Mission district man was cited for theft after the Oakland man found him inside his car, police said.

“The suspect said that he thought the car and its contents were abandoned,” police said.
