Default WRX stolen Union City, NJ / Jersey City border - FOUND!!!

Car was stolen Wed night from border of UC/JC.

I'm hoping someone can spot the vehicle, parts, or my snowboard gear. Please, if you see the car on the road, call the cops immediately. Anything else please contact me: 862-823-6173 . I'll give a reward if anything leads to them.

Description: Car is a 2002 Sedona Red Pearl Subaru WRX, loaded with snowboard goodies. Custom front grill all black and no emblem (not pictured), Rally Armor mudflaps, trunk completely debadged as well. Yellow fog lights, Thule roof rack with custom fairing, stickers on back window - "omg, Analog, green monster face, and others". Drag wheels as pictured. They may have discard roof rack.







Subaru people - parts that may be on market - STI axle back exhaust, whiteline sway bars, drag wheels 17 inch with Dunlop SP Sport tires, STI struts with megan springs front (orange) and sti springs rear (black), JVC double din head unit, oem gauge pillar.

Snowboard community -
Burton Rampant boots:


Burton pipe gloves - Some obnoxious bright green/red pattern. They look radioactive.

Anon goggles. - all red, reddish lens:

SPY Trever Andrews Goggle - all black, dark lense, sort of rainbow color logo and pattern over left eye of goggle.

Brand new Dragon Rogue goggles.


Bern helmet - with brim - "ERIC" on left side in bern font, but I would think they would remove this.


2 triple plays to creek.

Sky blue four square jacket ( I believe). Faint blood stains still visible.

Thats about it. I hope someone can someone identify any of this and get some leads. Thanks to all that looked into this.

I've been plagued by car thieves.

First car I've had stolen was a black integra GSR from Seton Hall parking garage.

Also sold my first integra which was then taken for a joyride one time, stripped the second time while in new owners hands. And sold an integra with a jdm gsr swap and a bunch of work done which got stolen a week after I sold it.

Gotta get a first gen impreza and swap it. Thieves do not look twice, as most of them have hood scoops but are N/A

They found my car Tuesday night. Was great news, was a bit hesitant regarding the condition, all I knew was it had plates on it and 4 wheels.

As you probably all guessed, it was found in Newark.

Went to pick her up today, and was pretty much best case scenario. They just took the car for a joy ride. Roof rack, all my goodies were all still in there. So now I have doubles of everything I re-purchased, but still a good outcome. I really lucked out, and hope some of the other guys missing their cars get lucky too.

***EDIT = I did notice my alarm no longer chirps when I lock or unlock the doors with the remote. The doors lock/unlock just no noise. I'm wondering if they knew what they were doing, and also wondering if there is a way to disable/cut the horn so it doesnt chirp from outside of vehicle.

1-Great that not only did you get your car back, but everything inside as well.
2-If your alarm is like mine (1998 Subaru OEM alarm) I just cut the wire to the "speaker horn" that's in the engine compartment near the passengers strut tower. I cut the wire while tracing an electrical issue many years ago since the battery would go low and trip the alarm. Never hooked the "speaker" back up.

PS, you may want to spend a little cash and take it to AZP to get a "look over" to see if there is any damage which your insurance may cover. Also get the "AZP special switch" installed. ;-)

Oh, forgot to add, many years ago a friend had a similar issue. Car stolen and then found.........15 years later!! It had new tires, a new battery, misc other work done but still had an umbrella & newspaper that were there when the car was stolen. Go figure. LOL
