Police are warning residents to keep an eye on their cars after two vehicles left running and unattended in driveways in Fremont were stolen early Tuesday.
Fremont police responded to a report of an auto theft in the 4100 block of Redstone Terrace at about 5 a.m.
A second car was reported stolen around 7:20 a.m. about 2 miles away, in the 32400 block of Lake Temescal Lane, police said.
In both instances, the cars were left running in the driveway with the key in the ignition.
About 10 minutes after the second vehicle was stolen, a third car theft was reported in the 32400 block of Meadowbrook Common.
In that case, police said, someone burglarized one vehicle and found a set of keys, then stole a second vehicle.
The car taken from Redstone Terrace was later found abandoned in Newark, police said.
