Investigators have obtained surveillance footage that captured the theft. Moilanen says the footage shows two possibly Asian males in their 20’s or 30’s exit a dark gray four-door Toyota sedan and lift the Prius up using a jack. The footage then shows one of the suspects get under the woman’s vehicle with a battery-powered saw then hand the car part to the other suspect. 

The two men then fled the residence in the sedan. So far no arrests have been made.
