ATLANTA (WXIA) – Two cars and three sets of car keys were stolen from the parking lot of a popular midtown Atlanta restaurant Thursday night. But what makes it so unusual is that it happened after the diners gave their keys to the valet.
Every day we put our trust in others to do the right thing – including with our cars. We trust each other to be safe drivers on the road, we trust mechanics to take good care of our cars – and if you go to certain restaurants, you trust that when you give your car keys to the valet, they, and your car, will be safe.
You certainly do not expect what happened Thursday night.
Midtown restaurant Ecco is a trendy spot for dining and occasional celebrity spotting. But Thursday night, Ecco played host to grand theft auto.
"The first thing was the key was missing," said Prineet Ramakur, one of the victims.
