The Broward County Sheriff's Office has released video that will remind you to lock your vehicle the next time you pump gas. 

It shows a woman filling up her car in Parkland at the Sun Gas Chevron station located at 7191 N. State Road 7.




At the same time, another car pulls up and then someone slowly gets out of the vehicle.

The person can be seen cracking open the woman's door and grabs her purse.

He then gets back in the car and the vehicle takes off.

Deputies remind you to remember to lock your vehicle while pumping gas or put your purse on the side you’re on so you can watch it.
