Two women charged with stealing car left running
Police warn drivers of leaving cars unattended and running
If you're going to get drunk and steal a car, it's probably not a good idea to have a bag of marijuana in your pocket during the heist.
A 24-year-old woman is facing charges of impaired driving, possession of stolen property and possession of marijuana for allegedly doing just that. Her co-accused, a 23-year-old woman, is charged with possession of stolen property,
Police said the owner of an $80,000 car reported it stolen at 2:30 a.m. CST while he had stopped to go into a house in the 1200 block of Avenue M N. About 30 minutes later, police spotted the vehicle on 20th Street.
Police stopped the car and arrested the occupants. There was no pursuit, no damages and no injuries.
The two women will be in court today.
