  1. People dont “hot wire” cars, it is practically impossible these days…my guess is the vehicle was left unlocked and the key or keyfob was left in the vehicle. You may not care about your car or valuables being stolen but think of the numerous other people you helped this criminal victimize or put in danger because of your carelessness or laziness. Keep your keys in a safe place and your car locked and stop being “accomplices” to future crimes.
