The rush to get out of the door in the morning is apparently behind a spike in car thefts in northern Virginia.
Ten cars were stolen from driveways off Silverbrook Road in Lorton over the past two months.
Each time, the driver left the car running and went back inside the home, according to West Springfield Police.
The thefts took place on weekdays between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m., typically when the owner was warming up the car before heading to work.
The cars stolen ranged in value from a $50,000 Acura to an $8,000 Toyota Corolla.
Investigators warn drivers to never leave a running car unattended; someone may be watching their actions.
