MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio -- We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Don't leave your car running unattended even for a second.

Mount Healthy Police are looking for suspects involved in two thefts in the past three days at the Speedway gas station on Hamilton Avenue. 

They're stealing cars with the keys left in them as their owners are inside the gas station. Both cars were eventually recovered, but a .45-caliber handgun was taken from one car. 

Police say the suspect information is the same in both cases: two black men, one about 16 years old and the other in his mid-30s.
