Police: 3 Cars Stolen While Warming Up in West Hempstead

Leaving your car running to warm it up while you wait inside might not be the best idea. 

Three cars which were left running and unintended to were stolen in West Hempstead Thursday morning between 5:15 a.m. and 6:44 a.m., according to police. 

Police said that the first incident involved a 64-year-old man, who exited his home on Juliet Road to warm up his 2000 Toyota. The man left the vehicle running and entered his home to retrieve his belongings, police said. When he went back outside, the car was stolen by an unknown subject(s) and was observed traveling northbound on Juliet Road, police said. 

At approximately 6:32 a.m., police said a 36-year-old woman went outside her Glen Road home to warm up her 2011 Honda, then re-entered the residence. When she came back outside the vehicle was missing, police said. 

Police said the third incident involved a 53-year-old female warming up her 2005 Mercedes Benz inside the garage of her Woodfield Road home with the garage door open. When she went to leave for work the vehicle was gone, police said. 

There is no description of the subject(s) and the investigation is ongoing, police said. 

Detectives request anyone with information regarding these crimes to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

remote start, an alarm, "steal & stall" or second key set should prevent this
