Woman takes off in SUV while driver pays bill

April 19, 2011

It seems a local man learned the hard way why it's never a good idea to leave the car running when you're not in it.

According to a Wauwatosa police report:

After getting into a conversation with a woman at a gas station, the man offered to take her for a drive.

He stopped at Metcalfe's Market, 6700 W. State St., about 8:20 p.m. April 13 to pay a bill, and left the vehicle running. She took off in the 2002 Acura MDX sports-utility vehicle, which belonged to the man's girlfriend.
