"Don't steal my car ... there's a passenger in the back," is probably what a man screamed, or thought when he realized that his running vehicle, with the keys in the ignition, was about to be stolen by two burglars.

According to a Campbell police report, the men walked up to the unlocked running vehicle at about 3:45 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11 in the 1600 block of South Winchester Boulevard.

The driver had gone inside a store do some shopping. 

One of the men opened the vehicle's driver's door and reached for the keys, the report said, when a passenger in the back seat began screaming and the men ran away, the report stated.
