LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) Lexington Police say that recently, a car was stolen when the owner left it running at a Shell Station on New Circle Road. Now, police need your help identifying the man who stole the vehicle.

"Never leave them running in your driveway, because these guys drive some of the nice neighborhoods, just looking for that, looking for the exhaust to come out, and tailpipes in winter time, it's a very easy steal for them, and they'll do it," said Detective Mark Thomas.

He said that every victim has the same reaction, saying that they never thought it would happen to them.
