Here’s a reminder of why you’re not supposed to start your car then go insdie while it warms up: according to the Spokesman-Review, a man stole a pickup truck Sunday that was warming up outside a Deer Park home.

The alleged car thief, 32-year-old Samuel J. Sanchez, says he stole the 1992 Ford Ranger because he was cold and tired of walking. The pickup’s owner reported it stolen immediately when he heard the engine revving and saw the truck leaving his driveway.

Sanchez was picked up on U.S. 395 a few minutes later without incident.
