The thief, who is believed to be a teenager, is alleged to have broken into the orange Suzuki Grand Vitara vehicle from a drive on Sandsend Road, in Eston , in the early hours of Sunday morning.

He made it just metres before smashing through two wooden fences and hitting a white Hyundai vehicle just 10 doors away.
A man was arrested by police officers at the scene.
Police are aappealing for anyone with any further information about the incident to contact the non-emergency number 101.
A main road through Brotton was closed yesterday following a crash involving a car.
The vehicle left the road and collided with a wall before coming to rest outside the Railway Arms pub near to the railway bridge in the town.
The car sustained extensive damage in the crash, which occurred shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
It is not known if anyone in the car sustained any injuries.
Volunteers from Cleveland Mountain Rescue Service gave up part of their weekend to help the Alzheimer's Society.
The Team spent yesterday on Roseberry Topping, working with the Alzheimer's Society to help raise awareness of dementia and to show the public what the charity does to support dementia sufferers and their carers.
During the course of the day team members from Cleveland Mountain Rescue Service climbed nearly seven thousand metres, walked just over a hundred kilometres.
They also spoke to around a thousand people about Alzheimers and how they might be able to help sufferers lead as normal a life as possible.
