Probably not the best thing to leave in an unlocked car

If you have a luxury car like a Mercedes-Benz, you’re going to want to take care of it. Wash it, make sure that the oil is changed regularly. Oh, and definitely don’t leave the keys in the vehicle over night. That’s the life lesson from the school of hard knocks that a Mercedes owner in Greenwich, Connecticut, had to learn.

According to the Greenwich Time, a Greenwich resident left his 2015 Mercedes GL450 parked overnight on July 3rd with the keys inside. Little did he know that a car thief was lurking nearby. Eyeing the Mercedes, the car thief decided to make his move. Imagine his surprise when he discovered the vehicle unlocked with both sets of keys inside.
