Fast forward to last week, when Walmart employees noticed a silver Volkswagen Jetta that had been parked outside of the Salinas, California store on Feb. 3, KSBW reported.

Police looked at security footage that went back as far as December, and it showed the car in the same spot. 

Walmart officials said they do not have security patrolling the parking lot overnight, but have the 24-hour surveillance camera.
