Albany Police are warning motorists not to leave their cars running unattended... because car thieves are watching.
Sabrina Lewis found that out the hard way about 5:30 Monday night.
Lewis left her Ford Mustang running with the doors unlocked while she ran inside Eastside Cleaners.
When she came out a minute later, her car was gone.
Tuesday Police recovered her stolen car , in Atlanta.
Albany Police Corporal Brian Covington said "If you leave your vehicle running. Unattended and the doors are unlocked, even for a split second, that's just enough time for someone to come in and take your car"
Police say even locking your car doors while leaving it running is not a good idea because a thief may just break your window.
