The car thieves are at it again here in Cedar Rapids.

I was told by a Cedar Rapids Police officer that another vehicle was stolen this morning. That vehicle was left running with the keys in it, making this a very easy heist.

I just wrote a story last week about cars getting stolen from people warming them up unattended. I do it, I do it all of the time! I may start to second guess that decision and either lock it up or just deal with a cold car.

Last year in Cedar Rapids, over 180 vehicles stolen were left running or the keys int he console. That's a crazy high number and we need to change that.

Easiest way is to lock those cars up if you walk away!  Let's not make an any easier for these thieves to steal your vehicle.

Be safe out there.
