Police warn residents not to leave cars running

Memphis Police say too many citizens have been careless by leaving their cars running on cold mornings.

According to police, there have been 72 vehicle thefts in Memphis since January 1st, and 24 of those vehicles were left running in a carport of driveway.
    
"To prevent these kind of car thefts is relatively easy," said Major Tim Cook with the Memphis Police Dept. "If you're gonna go out and warm up your car, you need to stay in your car."

Police say suspects have told them that seeing a running car in cold weather is too tempting to pass up.
