Pickett was making an appearance for a radio interview at a car dealership near Pittsburgh on Wednesday and left his 2023 Genesis in the parking lot, where it was stolen, as per WTAE’s Marcie Cipriani.
The police were able to recover the vehicle and the playbook. The thief left his own vehicle at the dealership, so cops were able to retrieve Pickett’s Genesis a mere 30 minutes later as they ran the plates of the vehicle left in the lot.
