An employee at the Saline CVS started her car to warm it up and went back inside the store. When she returned to the parking lot a couple minutes later, her car was gone.
The stolen vehicle was reported around 7 a.m., Dec. 10.
On Facebook, the woman said her vehicle was stolen by three black males. Saline Police Chief Jerrod Hart said police were reviewing surveillance video from the CVS.
Hart said starting your car and leaving it unattended can catch the attention of thieves. He said the safest way is to use a remote starter.
