Police have released CCTV footage after a vehicle was stolen with an elderly passenger still sitting in the back.

Investigators have been told the couple was delivering newspapers along Mary Street, Richmond last Thursday morning.

The 70-year-old driver got out and an unknown male got into his Kia sports wagon and took off.

The car thief drove a short distance before apologising to the 70-year-old woman in the back and fleeing on foot through a nearby park.

It’s the second time the woman has been in the back of a car stolen during the morning newspaper delivery run.
