NEW CANAAN, Conn. — Two cars in a New Canaan driveway, each with the spare key to the other inside, were stolen last week according to police. 

Police said they were called to a home on Spring Water Lane for a report of two vehicles being stolen on October 21. 

Officials said the 2018 Subaru Impreza and a 2015 Audi Q3 were stolen. The owner told police a spare key for each vehicle was in the opposite car and the owner stated that both vehicles were locked. 

Police said it was likely the key fobs detected the unlock button on the side of the door since it was in close proximity to the vehicle. Security footage from the homeowner showed the two suspects taking the vehicles just before 4 a.m.
