According to police, the driver of the Toyota left the door open and the keys in the ignition.

One of the men from the other car went over, peered into the window of the Toyota, jumped in and drove away.

The Toyota was found a week later an Orange Blossom Trail car dealership. Police said the thieves used the car to ram the gate at the dealership.
