LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say a recent parolee is at large after stealing a Maserati Granturismo valued at $75,000 from a dealership, right in front of the salesperson who gave him the key.

Jason Allen Steigerweld was identified as the suspect who stole a blue 2008 Maserati Granturismo from Motor Village LA on July 18 after video of the luxury sports car’s theft was released to the media.

Steigerwald was released on parole on July 14, just four days prior to the theft.

Detectives say Steigerweld posed as a customer and asked the salesperson for the key so he could listen to the engine. As the salesperson held on to the open driver’s door, Steigerweld allegedly got into the driver’s seat, started the engine, then put the car in drive and drove away on Figueroa.

The stolen Maserati Granturismo was recovered on Aug. 21, but detectives now need the public’s help in finding Steigerweld.

He is known to frequent the Los Angeles and Las Vegas areas.

Anyone with information about Steigerweld can call (800) 299-TRAP (8727).
