Car Thefts Are Soaring Because People Leave Key Fobs In The Car

See Here’s Why Car Thefts Are Soaring (Hint: Check Your Cup Holder) - The New York Times

Kicker:

This summer, a thief who took an Audi left running outside a Brooklyn pet store also made off with the owner’s French bulldog, Calvin. Police officers recovered both the car and dog about four hours later in Manhattan.

“What still haunts me to this day is I can’t imagine what it was like for him and how scared he must have been,” said Calvin’s owner, Zach Sobel, 27. On July 11, Mr. Sobel said he left his car running in Sunset Park with the air-conditioner on to keep Calvin cool, pocketed his key fob and went into the shop.

Gentrification. Not smart.
