Thieves made off with three cars in Cottonwood Heights that were left alone and warming up Monday morning.
Police urge people to not leave their cars idling and unattended, making them easy targets. The three people who did Monday, lost their rides within about two hours of each other.
The first report came in about 5:55 a.m. from the Pinnacle Highland Apartments, near 2100 E. Bengal Blvd. (7600 South). The thief took off with a silver 2004 Honda Accord with Texas plates, said Cottonwood Heights Police Sgt. Dave Broadhead.
