SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) - Police say a thief broke into a gym locker near Hartford, stole car keys and drove off with a car.

South Windsor Lt. Scott Custer says he believes the suspect walked outside the South Windsor LA Fitness with the car keys, activated the car’s parking light and drove off with the 2010 Lexus ES350 Tuesday morning.

Police say someone forced open at least three lockers at The Edge in Hamden a few hours later stealing cash and electronics.

Police tell WTNH-TV the thieves hit the same LA Fitness last week as well, cutting locks off of lockers while people were working out.

Police are looking into whether they’re connected and are keeping officers wearing gym clothes in unmarked cars at the gym.
