A man had his luxury SUV stolen twice in one day, according to a report.

Corey Simon was able to relocate his 2017 Jaguar SUV hours after brazen thieves stole it out of a garage on Monday – only to another set of thieves jump in the car while he was pumping gas, ABC 7 Chicago reported.

Simon took his car to an auto shop in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago for a routine oil change. After he left, two masked men wearing white shirts arrive and drive his car right out of the garage in broad daylight.

Security camera footage shows the thieves pull up in a black sedan and enter the shop through the open garage door.

Chicago Police were able to locate Simon’s car with the help of it’s GPS tracking system.

They found his car parked about 4 miles from the auto body shop in East Garfield Park.

As Simon began to drive home in his recovered vehicle, he stopped at a gas station in Bucktown to fill up his tank.

Another person then jumped in his car and took off, leaving Simon holding the nozzle. ‘The nozzle was in the tank, gas was flying everywhere,’ he said.

Simon said he had left his car running while pumping gas.

‘I contacted the two officers who helped me previously and said, “you’re never gonna believe this, but my car was stolen again.”‘

The police were able to locate his car again – this time it was taken about 5 miles away to Douglas Park. When they located it, the thieves had already replaced the car’s license plates.

All of this happened over the course of just three hours.

It does not appear that any of the thieves were arrested charged for either carjacking.

The Chicago Police Department advises drivers to always lock their car doors and never leave their cars idling or running unattended.
