CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - A Chula Vista family woke up to "surreal" sight Friday morning: Their GMC truck left on blocks.

In the East Lake community known as The Woods, Sally walked out to her father's truck parked near her home off Hunte Parkway.

"I had to do a double-take. Just shocked this would happen in our neighborhood," said Sally.

"This" was a 2017 GMC Sierra, left on bricks. All four tires and rims were gone, thousands of dollars worth.

"It's frustrating because they come and just take something you work hard for," said Sally.

A neighbor tells us he saw another truck on blocks a few weeks ago.
