NYPD Warns Motorists About Car Thefts While Pumping Gas

By: BZ Green 

The NYPD put out warnings about a concerning trend in car thefts around the area.

The new trend involves car thieves targeting vehicles as they are being filled up with gas, a time when motorists will often leave their cars' ignition on as they stand outside the vehicle or enter the convenience store. 

The NYPD's 70th precinct wrote the following this morning. "Thieves are stealing cars while you're pumping gas. Protect your vehicle with the following tips: 

Always turn off your vehicle, remove your keys and key fob, close all windows and lock all doors, and never leaves your vehicle running and unclocked while you're pumping gas."
