The Anything that Goes Turned Out to Be Audience Cars

January 11, 1990

CINCINNATI (AP) _ Three people attending a production of ″Anything Goes″ found out after the show that it was their cars that were gone.

They told police they left their cars - and their keys - in the care of two men they thought were valets at a lot near the Taft Theater on Tuesday night.

One man was wearing a uniform and badge, police said.

Cindy Schweikert, 31, said the bogus valets collected a $3 parking fee and joked with Ms. Schweikert and her mother.

″Are you two sisters?″ one of them asked the mother of Ms. Schweikert. ″My mother tipped him $1.″

Police recovered one car. They’re still on the lookout for Ms. Schweikert’s 1987 Nissan Sentra and for a 1989 Plymouth Acclaim.
