Fox LA Reporter Has Car Stolen. Helps Cops Find Suspects

By Kevin Eck 

KTTV anchor and reporter Susan Hirasuna helped get her car back after it was stolen last week.

Her Tesla was stolen in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday while she attending a concert in the area.

She drove to the LAPD administrative building on Main St. to file a report, but discovered the cops had already attempted to stop the vehicle for reckless driving.


Hirasuna has an app that tracks the vehicle and since her car only had about 15 miles of charge left, police decided to follow it until the battery power died.

Hirasuna said at least three people were in the vehicle. LAPD said one suspect may have been connected to an assault on Skid Row in which a person was struck with an axe. Officers discovered blood on the inside of the passenger door, and the vehicle was impounded for prints.

“This certainly changes my perspective on how to park my car,” Hirasuna said. “I’m going to put it in valet mode, which wouldn’t give them access to the trunk. Everything in my car is gone. And it means they couldn’t drive that fast.”
