(KTVI)-- A Fox 2 follow up on a stolen car from Jefferson County that was found by its owner through Facebook in Georgia.
Sondra Gaines heard the news about her son when she received a text Wednesday night from her daughter.
Cody Michael, Kelly Gaines and his friend are suspected of robbing numerous people in Missouri including a woman from High Ridge. They took her Volkswagen Beetle and posted this a picture on Facebook.
Sharon didn`t even know her son left the state of Missouri where they got caught stealing another man`s pick-up truck and is currently being held in custody there. He was living with her parents in High Ridge.
Sharon says that her son has a criminal history and may have taken one of her parent’s guns from the home.
She says she`s working right now to get a lawyer to support her son but knows that something like this needed to happen.
Gaines was going to be a senior at North-West High School. He also had a job at a Steak n Shake for a few weeks and his mom said he really liked it, so she was kinda taken aback by all of the news.
