— Thursday was a bad day for Katherine Ann Mitchell.

Mitchell told police she awoke Thursday morning to find her 2003 Dodge Intrepid stolen from the 1400 block of Acadia Street.

Shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday, Mitchell said she was at a Guess Road car wash when a man approached her and asked for 50 cents. When she replied she didn't have any change, he pulled a gun and drove off with her 2001 Mazda 626, as well as a purse filled with credit cards and cash, she told police.

Police said they are investigating the two car thefts and have no suspects in either case.
