Second car stolen and set fire to in Waterloo

Posted: Updated:

Waterloo Fire & Rescue responded to an earlier morning car fire, Sunday.

The fire was reported around 3:15 am near Springview Park on Spring View Street.

The car was a Nissan SUV that had been reported stolen just after midnight.

The owner of the car told police she was involved in a crash near Hope Avenue and Louise Street in Waterloo.

When the owner got out of the car to inspect the damage, people from the other vehicle stole the SUV.

This comes just over a week after a Waterloo woman's car was stolen from an apartment complex near San Marnan around midnight.

Less than 30 minutes later, police found the car on fire.

Both cases are being investigated as suspicious.  Waterloo Police have not said if the two cases are connected.
