Apparently, leaving your car unlocked with the engine running while you run inside to get a hoagie or visit the ATM is something that still happens.  The following information, from the Towamencin Police Department, illustrates why that is not a good idea.

On Oct. 4, a man left his 2014 Honda Accord running while he ran inside a Towamencin Wawa.  Not surprisingly, another man got in his car and drove away.  A few minutes later, the thief brought the car back to Wawa and drove away in a Nissan Altima.  

Soon after, the Altima was found in the parking lot of a Beneficial Bank, but the suspect was not found.  Turns out the Altima had been stolen too, from Virginia two days earlier. (No word from Towamencin police on whether that car had also been left running.)
