Denton County sheriff’s deputies responded Tuesday morning to a theft report from a Providence Village resident who woke up to no car.

According to reports, deputies went to the 2000 block of Bridgeport Drive after a man reported his gray 2012 Hyundai Tucson was missing from his garage.

The man said he came home Monday, placed his keys to his car in the garage on a key holder and by 6:45 the next morning, his new car was gone.

There were no signs of forced entry, and the garage door opener was in the open position attached to the garage door, deputies said.

Reports indicate a motorcycle was also in the garage and taken into evidence for fingerprinting and DNA evidence.

The motorcycle was found with the key in the ignition in the on position, deputies said.
