She stepped away for a few seconds, and when she returned, it was gone.

“Don’t leave your cars running. Even if you are, it just takes a split second. Even the police officer when he came that morning, he said ‘Even with remote starts, if they see it running they are going to do what they can to get what they want,'” Perkins-Troutman said.

She said she just wants her car back, and it’s the way shet gets to and from work.

Denver police want to remind people “puffing,” the act of leaving your car to warm up, is illegal.
