Car stolen while warming up

A resident of the 3500 block of Cambridge Avenue in Maplewood reported to 40 South that his car was stolen from his driveway Friday morning.

He said that at about 7:30 a.m. he left it running, unlocked, like he’s always done, while he went inside for 10 minutes. When he went back out it was gone.

He said the car, a 2015 Toyota Rav4, was a work car and loaded with expensive work-related equipment.

When he reported the theft to police they told him he should have locked it.

  1. I don’t feel sorry for him either. How many times do you need to be told not to do this? And you shouldn’t be letting a car warm up for 10 minutes. What a waste of gas.
