Car stolen after owner leaves keys in ignition

A 66-year-old woman was robbed of her vehicle after she left her keys in the ignition.

The victim reported to police that she had arrived at her St John Street home in her Toyota Corolla around 2:30pm and left the keys in the ignition and went in.

However, almost five minutes later, she observed someone she did not know driving away in her vehicle.

She immediately notified the police, who were able to track the vehicle via its GPS.

The car was later recovered at Orchid Street, Macoya Gardens, and towed to the nearby police station for safe keeping.

Police are once again pleading with citizens not to make themselves easy targets for criminal elements.
