Ice Bandits Stealing Unattended Cars Warming Up On Cold Mornings

Posted:

A few Fresno car owners learned the hard way about the dangers of warming up a vehicle unattended.

Extra Fresno police officers were out combing the streets on a very chilly morning Thursday.

They spotted a number of cars and trucks warming up without a person inside.

KMPH talked to one woman that left her 2005 Nissan Maxima for just a few seconds. "We ran out there the next thing you know the car is gone.  We run after it but it was just too fast," said the woman.

Fresno police officers spent the morning handing out flyers to people who left their vehicles unattended.

They warn that Ice Bandits are on the prowl when temperatures dip.
