Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A man stole a car from an Escondido auto sound business Saturday but did not get far -- the car had no windshield and the steering wheel came off during the attempted getaway, police said.

A witness told police a man broke the glass and entered Al and Ed's Auto Sound in the 1100 block of West Valley Parkway, police said.

The burglar allegedly sped away in a Volkswagen Beetle without a windshield. Further, the VW's seats and steering wheel were not properly attached, police said.

Officers responded to an alarm at the business at 4:52 a.m. and spotted the missing vehicle shortly after, police said.

Officers arrested its driver, identified by police as Alexander Josic, 35, of Escondido, for suspicion of burglary and vehicle theft.
