Man accused of using mobile detailing business to steal car

WINTERVILLE, N.C. — Police are looking for a man who is said to have used a mobile detailing business as a way to commit a crime, according to station WNCT.

WINTERVILLE, N.C. — Marilyn Thompson said she “kept thinking something was wrong,” about the mobile detailing business her son used for his car, according to station WNCT.

Police are looking for a man who is accused of using the business to steal her son’s car. “It was a shock,” she said in the article. “You don’t take your car to have it cleaned and expect the person cleaning it to steal it.”

The car was found abandoned, with a missing bumper sticker, and garbage left in it. The vehicle was otherwise in fine shape, according to the article.

Thompson met Keenan Earl Wooten, the man who is accused of stealing her son’s car, last year, when she sold him a van. Wooten opened a mobile detailing business, and had been detailing the vehicle owned by Thompson’s son.

The most recent time Wooten took the car to detail it, he did not return. The article states that Wooten has a history of committing similar crimes.  

Thompson wants to spread the word so this type of thing does not happen again. “He’s a business person, presenting himself doing a service, and I don’t want this to happen to someone else,” she said.
