    COBB COUNTY, Ga. - A Marietta woman is warning drivers to beware after a thief targeted her at the gas station.

    The woman, who only identified herself as Queen, told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik she’s still seething after becoming the latest victim of a slider.

    The woman said she pulled up to the pump at a Smyrna gas station along South Cobb Drive around 7 a.m. Thursday. That's when someone slid into her car and took whatever they could get their hands on.

    "After I was pumping the gas I came around because I had some stains on my car and I had water on this side of the door," Queen said.

    She told Petchenik that she walked away from her car to throw something away and that’s when a someone went into her car.

    "All of a sudden I heard a lady yelling at the other pump, ‘Ma'am, ma'am! He's in your car!’
    I turned around and he ran so fast," Queen said.

    In a split second, Queen said the man slid through the passenger side, over to the driver side and grabbed her belongings.

    "He took my phone and my wallet," Queen said. "He slammed the door and took off so fast that I got his license plate number."

    She said police have surveillance video.

    "He saw my face. I want to see his face," Queen told Petchenik. "If you see somebody ducking down being scandalous, a little raggedy thief who ain't got nothing to do, tell somebody else."

    Petchenik asked the gas station if he could see the surveillance video from the theft, but they asked him to go through Smyrna police. So far, they have not responded to Petchenik’s request.

    In the meantime, Queen had a message for the thief:

    "You need to stop doing this. You need to help the women out, not rob and steal from women," she said. “It's ridiculous."
