FOX 31 reports:
The spokesperson declined to share more details about where it happened or what the vehicle looks like “to protect the safety of Mayor Johnston and his family.” So it’s unclear whether the theft happened in Denver or elsewhere.
According to a post on X, formally known as Twitter, this isn’t the first time Johnston’s car has been stolen.
In a post from Jan. 1, 2017, Johnston tweeted, “Help! My car just got stolen from Office Depot on 35th+quebec. Call 911 if seen (yes I painted my car orange+blue).”
It is unclear if Johnston’s car was ever recovered.
